Practical Innovation at BioCon 2003


Bioinformatics Data Integration Approaches via SOAP Web Services and XML
Jurgen Kaljuvee

Track: Techniques
Date: Wednesday, February 05
Time: 2:15pm - 3:00pm
Location: California Ballroom C

In his presentations, Kaljuvee delves into bioinformatics data source using Apache Axis, an open-source SOAP Web Service implementation. He weighs pros and cons of various data integration approaches, including distributed objects approaches such as CORBA, as well as distributed services SOAP and XML-RPC. This talk focuses on SOAP Axis implementation, and why Kaljuvee believes an open-source SOAP implementation is the best data integration approach currently available. He presents a hands-on example of web services enabling a small biosequence database with a sample SOAP request message with an embedded XQuery (the new XML-based query language) statement and a sample SOAP response message. Kaljuvee ends the presentation with a note on the future directions of Axis and web services.
