This book will introduce the reader to SOAP and serve as a comprehensive reference to both experienced and new developers in the area. Only one other book completely dedicated to SOAP is currently on the market, and it has strong sales because no other information is available. SE Using SOAP will capture more readers than the competition because it provides real-world examples and troubleshooting with complete data conversion information. The emphasis will be on getting started fast instead of reading through white paper-style theory in hopes of finding applicable information. By reading this book and working through the examples, the reader will be well versed in SOAP and its applications immediately. SE Using SOAP includes difficult to find information on how SOAP works with different languages and protocols including Visual Basic.NET, Visual Basic 6, C#, XML, HTTP, SDL, DISCO, COM, SQL Server, plus much more. Also covers how to work with PDAs, an ever-growing need in the data transfer market.
