    Presentation Overview

    Lifecycle Management for Web Services

    One of the critical challenges of implementing Web Services is Lifecycle Management: providing versioning, change management, configuration management and reliability of Web Services and their components over time. Jim Bole of Infravio will discuss the issues of change management, versioning and other challenges of managing Web Services throughout their lifecycle. He will then address the importance of XML Schema as a foundation of Web Services Lifecycle Management and describe a model-centric, XML Schema-based approach to developing, versioning and ensuring the reliability of Web Services. Jim will also present real-world examples of companies implementing this approach to Web Services and demonstrate Infravio's solution for managing the Web Services lifecycle.
