   RE: [xml-dev] Web Services Mapping Capabilities?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Thank u Len for your valuable input
Does this mean everybody has to agree on one std vocabulary other than SOAP and XML std.?
But that is highly impossible

Subject: RE: [xml-dev] Web Services Mapping Capabilities?

Data Junction systems are often used in conversion efforts.  This probably
refers to the kind of mapping one might do given say, two different vocabularies
for the same ontogical types, so effectively, what one can do with XSLT if
it were datatype aware.
Think of the countless Indian dialects as the backend server system languages,
and a mapper as a transformer conversant with the subtleties of not
only the phonemic structures of each, but also the shades of meaning.
This is only the beginning of the issues.  Consider the complexities of
the court processes and ask how a case that spans several states
could be tried fairly and judiciously.   That is kind of challenge a
web service might be posed to solve, but will be quite difficult to meet.

I am going through a white paper on Web Services from http://www.datajunction.com/downloads/misc/webserviceswp.pdf
Would anybody like to comment on the following Para from the same PDF
I could not understand it properly
"In order to enable application integration

today's businesses require a very nimble and

powerful integration engine that can rapidly

and reliably connect one application to any

other SOAP-enabled (or non-SOAP-enabled)

program or application. Many of today's businesses

also need a powerful engine that has a

small footprint and doesn't dominate the

business' server. But an engine's nimbleness

and efficiency should not sacrifice much needed

mapping functionality - Web services

demand robust mapping capabilities"
