    Presentation Overview

    Web Services: Lessons Learned in the Field

    This presentation offers a case study of an application ZeeWare has built that makes effective use of Web Services. In this scenario, ZeeWare's client has a requirement to create a "Master Client Database" (MCD) that aggregates data from a multitude of departmental CRM applications, including Siebel, SalesLogix, and legacy AS/400 applications. The combined data is used to efficiently manage customer relationships at the corporate level. Web Services allow the departmental teams to synchronize their stores with the central database, using the tools and languages that best suit their respective environments.


    A Technical Overview of Web Services and Related Technologies

    SilverStream will cover the core technologies surrounding Web Services - including leveraging industry standards and how to build a web service. An effective Web service requires awareness of many new, as well as some existing technologies. This presentation will cover the core technologies in detail, including SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI - and how to leverage industry standards such as J2EE™ and XML. In addition you will learn the fundamental skills needed to produce, deploy, and consume a web service. Topics include how to build a web service, expose it via SOAP, describe it via WSDL, register it via UDDI and finally discover a web service and invoke it using a SOAP client. Deploy all of your web services into a standard J2EE application server such as SilverStream Application Server, WebSphere, or WebLogic.
