Bridging the Gap
In the next three years most enterprises will employ both the J2EE and .Net platforms. Take a look at some of the approaches that organizations can use to solve interoperability issues.
Building a Web Services Conduit
Web services let you share data between distributed systems. Discover how to sell products from your Web site by creating a proxy object that provides object-oriented access to a company's Web services data.
.Net Servers Challenge for the Enterprise
Microsoft's Windows .Net Server 2003, an important .Net architecture component, marks the company's first real foray into application servers.
XForms for Managing Forms-Based Data
XForms defines a mini XML-based programming language that simplifies data-entry implementations dramatically.
Java to XML and Back Again
Jato, an open source library, automates transformations between Java and XML, easing the development of Web services and other conversion requirements.
The Crux of SOAP Encryption
In the second of two installments, see how to leverage advanced capabilities of Web services
by using .Net to encrypt selected parts of SOAP messages.
Localization Made Easy
Learn a powerful and easy approach to building a localization infrastructure for Java, based on XML.
Take the first of several looks at how XML
interacts with programming languages.
XML in the Raw?
Kurt Cagle says we shouldn't become so fixated on hiding XML that it disappears. Consider the fight between the XML Brokers, the XML Linguists, and others on whether to "clothe" XML or keep it "naked."
Track Changes to
an XML Document
Why write custom code to track changes made within an XML document? Using .Net's built-in support for DOM events gives you a better alternative.
Compare Web Service
Performance problems are a potential showstopper for widespread adoption of WS-Security X.509 encryption and signing. How will it affect your Web service execution time?
