('binary' encoding is not supported, stored as-is) Ciao all, Interoperability is one of the key benefits of web services over competing technologies and a fundamental factor for wide business adoption. Many businessman see web services as the first “new” technology that can bring value, without requiring a big-bag highly-expensive approach. If web services are to succeed, we should encourage this belief. Legacy IT infrastructure shouldn’t be left out from the party. Legacy systems are typically unable to support SOAP/WSDL, but capable of writing an xml text message. Look for the answer in the greatest common factor, definitely -5 Have a nice week Marco Adragna (Oxford Uni) Received on Monday, 9 June 2003 06:40:18 GMT
