   RE: [xml-dev] Web Services Review

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It doesn't tell us a lot that we don't already know, but it 
isn't too far off the mark for what it does say.  In other 
words, not terribly informative but not wrong.

Again, I see web services as a good way to get edge systems 
to communicate with the enterprise applications.  I don't 
see them as a great architecture for fine-grained, high frequency, 
communications.   A model for systems that already work like 
that pre-web, pre-XML is NCIC.  It is global, functional, mature 
and well-implemented.  If one takes that path, the ramp up to 
web services will go slower than expected and .NET can be 
seen as a part of the application development environment, not 
the core of it.

But what we see is often based simply on what we need today 
so my perspectives are limited.

I would be curious to hear what people think of the following article, 
which attempts to describe the current state of web services:

Web Services Review
Mark Waterhouse. Web Services Architect

Is this a good overview of where we are at? Does it leave out anything 
important? Is it balanced?
