Although many applications have been developed that use web services in some way or another, not all of them have been developed recently. This means that the choices available when these web service applications were developed could have been very different than it is now. Since many clients are beginning to upgrade their Java application server environments, perhaps even after skipping 1-2 versions of the server, it would be good to be familiar with all of the choices available now with modern web service environments and the changes that have been introduced. In this webinar we will survey the various choices for implementing modern web services and the clients of these services. Besides introducing JAX-WS, a simplified way to do SOAP web services, we will also cover the newest style of REST web services and how to use the JAX-RS specification to develop these services. A comparison between SOAP and REST web services and when to use each will be important information also. We will also provide a brief review of some of the various advanced WS-* SOAP service specifications that can address specific integration issues since these have seen much wider support and adoption as more environments are upgraded. So attend this webinar if you want to know the current range of choices available to you and how to apply the best technologies to implement application requirements.
