Exchanging Objects and Messages with SOAP
Ian Kallen, Technorati, Inc.

Track: XML
Date: Tuesday, July 23
Time: 1:45pm - 5:15pm
Location: Harbor Island I

This talk will discuss the myths and realities of "web services." SOAP promises to expose applications as services over the Web using XML purveyed on top of standard transport protocols such as HTTP and SMTP. We'll show some examples and demonstrate separate systems written in separate languages, Perl and Java, exchanging messages and objects as part of a larger application.

The technologies we'll discuss include

  • XML
  • XML Schema
  • HTTP
  • the Apache SOAP Java libraries
  • the SOAP::Lite Perl libraries
  • setting up Tomcat as a SOAP server
  • setting up mod_perl as a SOAP server
We'll also look at design issues to consider to make an application "web services ready" with regards to providing security and transactions. Finally, we'll look ahead at where these technologies will take us in the future.
