About This Course

Course Overview :

Web services are client and server applications that communicate over the World Wide Web’s (WWW) HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP). As described by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), web services provide a standard means of interoperating between software applications running on a variety of platforms and frameworks. Web services are characterized by their great interoperability and extensibility, as well as their machine-processable descriptions, thanks to the use of XML. Web services can be combined in a loosely coupled way to achieve complex operations. Programs providing simple services can interact with each other to deliver sophisticated added-value services.

  • Strong Java programming skills are essential
  • Students must be able to read XML documents and to write well-formed XML by hand
  • Experience with other Java EE standards, especially servlets and JSP, will be very helpful in class, but is not strictly required.
