- Implementation Issues with Axis Document-Literal Messaging
Document-literal services seemed to perform admirably. Under heavy payloads and with many simultaneous users accessing the web service, the infrastructure still processed all transactions successfully, keeping the roundtrip infrastructure overhead well under a second. Document-literal web services are thus determined to be deployable to production. Web services with attachments had near identical numbers to those of document-literal web services, due to their nearly identical processing flow.
RPC-style services may be convenient for quick prototypes, but clearly are not production-ready and cannot be deployed by an enterprise for any real enterprise web services.
