XML Web Services and Smart Clients
This chapter provided an overview of XML Web Services. We began with a review of two business cases that demonstrated how using XML Web Services and smart clients can lower future development costs and give applications a broader reach. Next, we summarized the benefits and drawbacks to using an associated technology with XML Web Services. Then we reviewed each of the technologies used by XML Web Services: XML, SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, and DISCO. Finally, we went through the steps to develop an XML Web Service with Visual Studio .NET 2003 or 2005.
In the next chapter, we will explain how integrating these elements into a service-oriented architecture will enhance your smart client application.
