Subject Re: Best Practice
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2004 12:09:29 GMT
Thanks, Nikki.

We have a standard of complying to Basic Profile 1.0, for interoperability 
but, on top of that, I'm looking for generally accepted good ways of doing 
stuff during development of web services servers and clients. Beyond BP 1, 
are there useful ways to structure WSDL and type definitions, are there 
any deployment tips, are there any patterns for common problems in web 
services, tips on building and testing, and so on. I've seen this sort of 
stuff for languages and technologies in the past and, no doubt, best 
practices will emerge on web services, in the future. Quite a good, thin, 
book of Java is "Java with Style" (or some such title). It would be nice 
to have something like that for web services, but, until then, if anyone 
has produced anything in this vein, that would be great.

Thanks for the links. I was aware of them but don't think they have 
anything specific on best practice, though some of the information might 
prove useful for a best practices guide.


Hi Tony

Not sure what you're after in particular,

For W3C's efforts in this area see links from
For OASIS efforts see

For Axis there is the userguide, this list & if you search the archives of 

this list for "books" you may find other helpful references.
