Exploring the Faux Implementation Pattern
The past several chapters have assumed that a client of the EventService Web Service will deploy their subscriber to a full Web Service environment to subscribe to a few events. In many ways, this is like using a mainframe to play your MP3 files. Not only do you waste the full potential of the environment, you introduce a whole host of unnecessary issues, especially if you have a small client. In the case study, for example, you deploy Apache Tomcat and the Apache Axis environment to subscribe to an event. You then build and deploy a Web Service that uses the Connector pattern from Chapter 13, “Exploring the Physical Tiers Pattern,” to ensure that the application can receive events from the client-side Web tier. This is a lot of work for little return.
