Sample text

A service provider exposes a service interface to which all messages are sent, the consumer sends a message to the provider requesting the service, and the provider responds with a message containing the results of the request. The second is that the “web” in the name web service implies that HTTP will be used since this is the ubiquitous protocol of the Internet and is invariably passed by firewalls. NET web services is that the data included in the request and response messages is formatted according to the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), which is defined in terms of XML structures.

It is rather like offering goods for sale. The component application advertises a contract that may be entered into by a purchaser. The purchaser does something and the vendor does something in return; the contract is agreed on and both sides know what they are getting into. If I go into a grocery store and buy onions, I expect to have onions in my basket—I do not expect them suddenly to be replaced by mangoes; similarly, a software contract must be clearly defined and unchanging. Those who are familiar with service-oriented architectures may see that we are moving along toward defining providers, consumers, WSDL, SOAP, and so on, but let’s not jump ahead.

A typical service-oriented architecture distributed application: a sales site using a catalog web service and a currency conversion web service Figure 1-6 shows the message flow for a typical search of the catalog initiated from the browser client: 1. The browser client posts a page to the Sales Website Application to initiate a catalog search. 2. The Sales Website Application processes the post and determines that a call to the Catalog Web Service is required. qxd 7/19/06 10:10 AM Page 17 CHAPTER 1 ■ INTRODUCING MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIO 2005 TEAM SYSTEM 3.
