Leverage the power of Web Service and your iSeries!


Web Services are key to inter-system communications today, in many cases replacing the role EDI would have played just a few years ago. In this session Walden will look at Web Services, what they are, why you care and how to use them. Walden will address both “big web services” (XML and SOAP) and RESTful services (integral to many Ajax services), their protocols, advantages and disadvantages and when to use which. In this session we will have a quick XML overview then look at the details of a Web Services Descriptor Language (WSDL) file, the heart of SOAP services. We will review the differences between SOAP and REST services, and why REST can be simpler to use in many cases. We will also look at how to both implement and consume a web service from several of the popular iSeries development environments including RPG, PHP and .NET.
