Category:  SOAP Toolkits
Details:  IBM Web Services Toolkit is a runtime environment as well as demo/examples to design and execute web-service applications to find one another and collaborate in business transactions without programming requirements or human intervention. Web services are self-describing, self-contained, modular applications that can be mixed and matched with other Web services to create innovative products, processes, and value chains. Web services are Internet applications that fulfill a specific task or a set of tasks that work with many other web services in an interoperable manner to carry out their part of a complex work flow or a business transaction. In essence, they enable just-in-time application integration and these web applications can be dynamically changed by the creation of new web services. Various applications that are available on the Internet can be accessed and invoked at run time without prior knowledge and programming requirements to enable business processes and decision-making at Web speeds. IBM's Web Services Toolkit provides a runtime environment as well as demo/examples to design and execute web-service applications to find one another and collaborate in business transactions without programming requirements or human intervention.

The Web Services Toolkit contains several downloadable components.

The toolkit component that was called the Services Broker has been removed from this version of the WSTK. The toolkit now inlcudes a fully functionion client API that can be used directly access a UDDI registry. The client API makes use of the UDDI4J api which is available at http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource. Also included are several SOAP-related technical previews: (1) the COM pluggable provider is an Apache SOAP pluggable provider that takes incoming requests to the SOAP server and delegates them to a COM object; (2) the Web Services Management Technology Preview introduces a management interface which allows SOAP server resources to be managed; (3) SOAP Chaining Framework preview demonstrates how modules of code (or Handlers) can be chained before and/or after the actrual Web Service being invoked. These Handlers allows for other, non-specific actions to be performed such as logging and security authenication.

You've heard about Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and the Universal Discovery Description & Integration (UDDI). Take a look at the latest WSTK to see how WSDL documents can be stored in a UDDI registry. Web services are stored in a UDDI compatible registry and developers can see the integration of important B2B technologies: UDDI, WSDL, and Web Services.

WSTK v.2.2 contains an updated Web Services Browser which can browse a complete UDDI registry in a tree-view format. This utility can be used to browse through web services published with the Web Services Client API, publish and unpublish services, view and save services' descriptions. This Web Services Browser is supplied as a separate plug-in to the IBM XML and Web Services Development Environment alpha technology. This development environment is available on alphaWorks at http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/wsde . The IBM XML and Web Services Development Environment creates open, platform-neutral Web services for deployment across heterogeneous systems. The WSTK demonstrates how some of the emerging technology standards such as UDDI and WSDL work together and provides simple to use examples of web services.
