Arthur,

Thanks for the info.  Did they use a SOAP architecture or RESTful
architecture?

What I try to see is if wsdl can be used to describe a RESTful web
services.

Hao,

IBM jStart did a Web services engagement with Adobe on a system called
AlterCast. AlterCast is an image processing service that has a Web
services
interface. Perhaps you could look into it to determine the solution they
adopted.



 "To help their customers automate image production workflows,
 Adobe is introducing Adobe AlterCast? image server. Adobe
 AlterCast software automates the production process and provides
 a way to innovate with images and reduce costs."





See case study:

hi,

I mentioned some of my concerns this morning about wsdl's support of
REST.
I'd apprecite
any feedbacks on the follwing use case:

Suppose we have an image processing WS. All images are droped to this
URL:

http://www.foo.com/image/incoming, using POST.

All clients will then get processed image from the following URLs:

http://www.foo.com/image/$client_id/

after, say, 10 minutes from droping the images.

The question is, how do we use wsdl to describe this service?

Hao
