As a registered member of SearchSOA.com, you're entitled to a complimentary copy of Chapter of XML Problem-Design-Solution written by Mitch Amiano, Conrad D'Cruz, Kay Ethier, Michael D. Thomas and published by Wrox. " Providing Web Services" focuses on how to provide your own Web services and RSS feeds specific to your business design and specifications.
Providing web services and RSS channels requires you to develop some expertise in web application development and distributed computing. With an understanding of SOA, you can develop good services applications using either SOAP or REST web services. At the heart of services is the need to integrate different software components, and what you learn in this chapter is how different standards that use XML can accomplish integration.
