As a mission-critical component of applications, Web Services support communications and commerce that is independent of platforms and programming languages. Imposing no restrictions on program size, VisualWorks’ standards-based Web Services technology creates fully functional client- and server-side applications.
The white paper details the implementation of the following standards in support of VisualWorks Web Services development:
• XML-to-object mapping for data exchange over the web, allowing applications written in different languages on different platforms to communicate.
• Simple Object Access Protocol, for SML web-services communications.
• Web Services Description Language, defining the interface and mechanics of service interaction, so that other applications can access and interact with those web services.
• Universal Description, Discovery and Integration, which registers web services so that users can find them; VisualWorks supports UDDI version 1.0 API.
The white paper also outlines the VisualWorks Web Services components, tools and wizards supporting each standard.
