ConceptShare allows you to easily share designs inside Workspaces that contain designs related to a certain topic or project. It’s easy to invite people into a workspace. Invite team members, managers, clients, and consultants to add and reply to comments, chat and markup designs. People do not have to be in the workspace at the same time to contribute. Workspace members can log-in anytime to any workspace they are member. If members do happen to be in the workspace at the same time they can collaborate with real-time chat and real-time comment updates and concept updates. Paid accounts can manage multiple workspaces and premium accounts can be branded to your logo and colors.

The hidden battle between web services: REST versus SOAP

by mbertier & 2 others (via)
Simplicity is a virtue. And in software development, it's an essential virtue. The venerable Jargon File has long had a particularly good adjective for systems that aren't simple: They are baroque.

The hidden battle between web services: REST versus SOAP

by nhoizey & 2 others (via)
Almost everyone has at least heard of SOAP. Few people have heard of REST. But both are jockeying for the mindshare of developers trying solve problems building applications on the web. REST by virtue of existing, and SOAP largely by virtue of backing by software vendors and standards bodies.

Howto: Getting Started with WebServices and JOnAS 3.X

by roulian
WebServices are fully integrated in J2EE 1.4 compliant Application Servers. Web services technologies can be seen as another communication protocol used to interoperate heterogeneous systems. Web services are based on the SOAP protocol. The SOAP messages can be transported with various transport mode (JMS, HTTP, mail, ...) but the focus of this document is the HTTP transport (because Web Services for J2EE v1.1 use only SOAP/HTTP).

How to Develop a J2EE-Compliant Web Service (endpoint + client)

by roulian
This Howto describes how to create a Web Service Endpoint and a J2EE client that uses this web service. The endpoint will provide a method for computing the compound interest from an initial investment, an interest rate (percent) and a time quantity.

Turn EJB components into Web services

by roulian
The evolution of Web-related technologies has changed the way applications in an organization communicate with customer and partner applications. Like every popular technology, Web services came like a wave and have assimilated deeply into IT organizations. Having revolutionized the IT world, Web services are here to stay. Thus, to compete in the market space, certain parts of your enterprise applications must be exposed as Web services.

EJB: Learn EJB, EJB 2.1

by roulian & 1 other
Considering what they are, Enterprise JavaBeans are "easy". As of EJB 2.0 they became even easier. And as of EJB 2.1 you can generate Web services from EJBs. You could say EJBs are too easy. You can create EJBs using an IDE with just a few mouse clicks. What could be easier? A major value of EJBs is their contribution to a set of business standards. EJBs enable scalable distributed transactions and connection to a vast array of Internet services - a modern version of what mainframe transaction systems used to do. However, no matter how easy EJBs may look, you need to be discressionary and careful about usign them. Scalability and distributed services, the platform architecture for EJB and J2EE have been a complex undertaking. And to understand how to write, integrate, and deploy EJBs, you need to understand this platform architecture.

The Python Web services developer: Python SOAP libraries

Un web service SOAP pour la brique RCX

by roulian & 3 others
En mettant à la portée de tous mon expérience personnelle dans la création de clients SOAP, j'ai voulu permettre à tout développeur de pouvoir exploiter un service web SOAP. Vous avez donc accès à des examples de clients SOAP en Java, PHP (NuSoap), Perl (SOAP::Lite) et Python (SOAPpy et ZSI) pour un Java WSDP web service (document/literal), et aussi à différentes sections démontrant l'interopérabilité entre un web service .NET et des clients JAX-RPC (Java), NuSoap (PHP), SOAP::Lite (Perl), PyXml ou ZSI (Python).

Architecting Industry Standards for Service Orientation

by nhoizey
Many messages that flow among businesses are formatted to specific industry standards. As we move toward Web services and service orientation the payloads can add value to the messaging infrastructure in a flexible, interoperable, composable way.

Radovan Janecek: Nothing Impersonal: Mental Exercise

by nhoizey
Is HTTP GET/POST enough for you? Fine. Then you are simply not the 'right target' for web services evangelists ;-)

Radovan Janecek: Nothing Impersonal: September 2004 Archives

by nhoizey (via)
Will there be still 97% of simple REST services on the web then? Yes, sure. WS-* does not compete with browser-oriented applications or simple-get-then-do-regexp interactions

REST Eye for the SOA Guy (Middleware Matters)

by nhoizey (via)
my latest Internet Computing (IC) Toward Integration column tries to take a middle ground in the ongoing "REST vs. SOA" debate. It's called "REST Eye for the SOA Guy" (PDF) and it attempts to explain, from the perspective of someone like me with a lengthy SOA background, the benefits that REST brings to the distributed systems picture

Sam Ruby: Tolerance

by nhoizey (via)
acceptable levels of tolerance differ depending on whether or not a given operation is safe or not

Service Architecture - SOA: Why Quality of Service depends on the Consumer and the Producer

by nhoizey (via)
it is actually not up to the server to purely dictate a straight process and response to the consumer it is up to the consumer and producer to negotiate the right result for both parties a QoS policy that assumes that the producer is the final arbiter of quality is liable to produce a very unfriendly service and one which doesn't interact with people in the manner which they wish

by nhoizey (via)
to implement Web Services Security with the X.509 Certificate Profile, you also need to implement XML Signature (which includes XML Canonicalization and XML Exclusive Canonicalization) and XML Encryption. To correctly handle imports of WSDL1.1 documents (and validate the traffic they describe), you need to support the entire behemoth that is XML Schema -- in particular if you are attempting to support RPC-oriented SOAP, which informally requires you to support the entire XML Schema Datatypes specification. Don't forget support for SOAP with Attachments, either!
