"SOAP Web Services & XML: Three Sides Of The Elephant" by Michael D.
- This presentation presents web services from a distinctly XML
perspective. As a starting point, the ancient parable about three blind
men studying an elephant is used. Each man thinks it is something
different because no one has the whole perspective. XML is like that.
XML can be a document, a data structure or a programming language.
SOAP-based web services utilize XML in all three ways. You'll see how as
you learn the basic architecture of web services.
Michael D. Thomas is a software developer, architect, author and
