The computing industry has developed many methods to allow computers to share resources and applications, to create a distributed computing environment--such as DCOM and CORBA. These are the "glue" of today's distributed computing world.
Leverage the power of SOAP on any platform, with any leading programming language!
SOAP is the universal "glue" that can integrate virtually any distributed system, helping enterprises streamline processes and communications across the Internet as never before. SOAP: Cross Platform Web Services Development Using XML is the practical, hands-on introduction to using SOAP on Windows, Linux, and UNIX platforms, using any of five leading programming languages. Discover how SOAP leverages key Internet standards such as XML and HTTP to solve distributed computing problems that DCOM and CORBA can't! Coverage includes:
The last six chapters of this book present a start-to-finish SOAP case study application-from requirements and design through coding.
Whether you're constructing Internet applications, integrating existing applications within or between enterprises, or simply evaluating SOAP, this book contains the insights-and practical examples-you're looking for.CD-ROM INCLUDED
The accompanying CD-ROM contains complete SOAP implementations for Windows, Linux, and UNIX, plus all source code from the book.
