Hi,
I'm new to Web Services and found the following quote regarding SOAP:
"The most popular implementations are by Apache and Microsoft within their .NET platform. The two implementations have a few discrepancies that make applications developed using the two technologies non-interoperable".
1) Is this statement still a valid representation of the state of Web Services?
2) Is there any way of using Web Services to integrate Microsoft and J2EE applcations using Web Services?
3) Can Microsoft applications use the Apache rchnologies?
Our client has a number of systems that have been developed using different technologies - J2EE, COM/DCOM etc and would like the systems to be integrated. Are Web Services a solution for this type of integration or have I missed the point of Web Services entirely?
Thanks in advance for any help you provide,
Cheers,
Steve

The statement is a gross generalization and utter hogwash. There are discrpancies between the two implementations, yes, but with even a little bit of work you can make the two interoperate in most every case. In fact, all the major vendors cooperate on WSI and organization devoted to promoting Web Services interoperability.

Hi,
Thanks for the swift response.
I guess I'll need to re-examine my trust in Wrox books - and specifically the Java Server Programming J2EE 1.3 edition. :-)
Cheers,
Steve

Steve,
As a suggestion, I try to read several different viewpoints on new technology uses, as a conservative measure. Particularly books on Java, are often rushed to completion and sometimes not everything included is well-reviewed or thought-out. I have read many Java books over the past 5 years. Forums like these are a great place to compare notes. And, Kyle Brown is a top-notch bartender as well as Java author.
