Traditional Application Development
Business Applications
User InterfaceCentered Development
  • Designed outside-in
  • UI drives, process follows
  • Complicates integration attempts

Mission Statement
We simplify the job of creating the worlds best
business applications.
14
Starting Now
The Worlds Best Applications
  • Will not be bound
  • by any one user interface technology,
    methodology, or platform
  • Cannot exist
  • as an island, Interoperability, central to the
    design and integration, must be easy
  • Will be
  • business processes expressed as software

  • Delivering the vision in partnership with our

23
Whats a Web Service?
  • Application component that encompasses a parcel
    of work
  • Platform / OS / language independent
  • Self-describing callable at run-time
  • Utilizes network interface
  • Complies with standards

24
Web Services a Progress Definition
An application or business logic component that
can be accessed over the Web (or any network)
from a client application using RPC style calls
encoded with SOAP over HTTP where the interface
can be described using WSDL.
25
Web Services Standards
  • HTTP
  • A protocol to request and transmit files over the
    Internet or other computer network
  • SOAP
  • XML-based transport mechanism and messaging
    protocol
  • WSDL
  • XML-based language that allows an application to
    describe its interface and how to access it
  • UDDI
  • A standard for Web service registries
  • A Yellow Pages of Web Service providers
