I'm presenting at the Software Association of Oregon (SAO) on November 20th, come for the pizza, stay for the WSDL.

Web Services: Behind the Music

This month's Developer’s SIG is a hands-on demystification of Web Services. This technical talk is good for the beginner as well as the expert; helpful for the programmer and the business user. You will leave this presentation with:

  • A "Zen-like" understanding of how Web Services work and how to make them work for you.
  • Insight in how TCP/IP, HTTP, XML, XSD, SOAP, and WSDL all work together to become "XML WebServices"
  • A sense of the vast landscape of Web Service space you can choose from when working with Web Services
  • A view into how Web Services work from .NET, Java, COM (VB6, VB Script, Office, etc)
  • Your own bat-belt of free tools & utilities that make working with Web Services just that much easier

IMG Height394 AltA Picture Named SoapExtWizJPG Hspace15 Srchttpradioweblogscom0108971images2002101

A picture named SoapExtWiz.JPGIt's a 0.1 version! Don't expect miracles!

Here's the C# wizard for ASP.NET Soap Extensions.

What works: It'll generate a compiling SoapExtension that will exactly do nothing. However, the code should have all the hooks to get started.

What doesn't work: (a) You need to click on "Application Options" once to initialize the settings correctly. (b) I haven't had the time to test all option combinations. (c) Any project name that isn't a single word will likely cause the wizard to create garbage. (d) The namespace from the project settings page isn't picked up. (e) Probably several bugs in the template code.

Purpose: Demonstrates that custom stuff can be plugged into VS.NET. Makes creating full SOAP Extensions a bit easier and helps understanding how they are built.

What to do with it: If you need adjustments, poke around in the wizard's templates1033 subdir.

How to install: Unpack the archive, read the readme.txt. It's just three steps. Unpack an archive, copy one file, edit one file. Once that's done, start VS.NET and try.

And as always: It may just not work for you. If that's the case, mail me.

Ken Bereskin talks about my favorite feature in Jaguar. The Archive Install always tickles me, since it saves a lot of time. Could Microsoft ever come close to something like this? Probably not, because user stuff is still half in the registry, half on the hard drive. Plus, Microsoft is still working on what they call "xcopy deployment," something that we call "dragging shit from a disk image to your Applications folder and having it just work."
