Where are these products now? They've been almost entirely replaced - by solutions based on those "interesting" ideas of SQL and J2EE. I... (more)

Deploying Large-Scale Interoperable Web Services Infrastructures

Thus, architects are concerned about best practices for building, deploying, and maintaining a large-scale interoperable Web services infrastructure. In one sense, Web services applications are like other applications. They represent a code base developed by a team of engineers. This code base needs to go through a methodological development life cycle, followed by testing and quality assurance, before it is finally released.... (more)

Click here for FREE software from Oracle http://www.oracle.com/go/?&Src=1170761&Act=6 Introduction Web services are the "new kids on the block" and as with all adolescent technologies they are can be a little troublesome, take time to understand and always testing you with something new. Given this, how does a developer get started with Web services? And for those more experienced, how does the developer speed up the developing, debugging, and deployment cycle? In this paper we will hope to provide a jump-start to both these questions. We will run through the basics of building W... (more)
