O'Reilly Open Source Convention


Web Services, Perl and SOAP::Lite

Track: BOF
Date: Wednesday, July 09
Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Salon D

Moderated by Alasdair Allan

SOAP is a lightweight protocol for exchange of information in a decentralised, distributed environment. It is an XML based protocol that consists of three parts: an envelope that defines a framework for describing what is in a message and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for expressing instances of application-defined datatypes, and a convention for representing remote procedure calls and responses.

SOAP::Lite for Perl is a collection of modules which provides a simple object orientated interface into the SOAP protocol, both on the client and server side.

The BOF will hopefully focus on the practical problems developing web and grid services using the library, and the interoperability issues that arise in this emerging area of technology.

We will also talk about the future of the module, and web service development, using it. The main module author Paul Kulchenko will be attending an has agreed to kick the discussion of with a brief presentation.
