[PLUG] XML.org news postings
In case some of you haven't noticed, the www.XML.org news postings have become considerably more focused and useful in the last few months. They are updated daily and have not only links, but actual content that is in some cases hidden behind passworded sites. For example, I just noticed: http://www.xml.org/xml/newsreport_article.shtml?SMContentIndex=28 - "Untangling Web Services" [original content asks for a password] "The future reliance of applications on Web services may require lots of developer retraining for all but the simplest programs.To put it into perspective, the jump is similar to going from procedural programming in DOS to event-driven programming under Windows.Development tool companies may have made it easy to write and read Web services. But this is like making a car easy to drive - you still have to learn the road rules, new methods of coord-ination and a new vigilance towards what's going on around you.Sadly, developer courses covering Web services to this level are few and far between. And after speaking with vendors, I can tell you nobody really knows how the Web services craze will pan out, hence the lack of real information." http://www.xml.org/xml/newsreport_article.shtml?SMContentIndex=3&SMContentSet=0 "Rogue Wave's Ruple tackles Web services deployment" [original content requires a subscription, I think] "Conclusion: Rogue Wave has tapped into what is expected to be a major opportunity, that of delivering solutions to bridge the disparate worlds of J2EE and Microsoft .NET, and what is sometimes called the 'peer-tier.' IT services companies such as Accenture have already begun to develop tools that deliver and bridge these Web services. In addition to interoperability and portability, though, Rogue Wave is attempting to address several other shortcomings of Web services, including the tight coupling of the architecture due to the synchronous nature of RPC and explicitly named endpoints." [disclaimer: I'm on the XML.org advisory board, so this is somewhat self-serving. Nevertheless, the maintainers of the site are EXTREMELY open to suggestion on how to further improve its utility for the XML community.]
