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:
- All the XML you need to get started with SOAP
- SOAP's basic syntax: HTTP headers, SOAP payloads, error handling, data types, encoding structures, and more
- Extending SOAP to support heterogeneous and legacy environments
- SOAP programming with C++, C#, Perl, Visual Basic, and Java
- Comparing today's leading SOAP servers
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.
The accompanying CD-ROM contains complete SOAP implementations for Windows, Linux, and UNIX, plus all source code from the book.
