Common sense first web service development

April 17, 2007

When wishing to define a good message or documented oriented web service interface, you can start with whatever you like as long as its common (technical) sense. Starting with WSDL guarantees nothing if you are still thinking in RPC terms. And starting with Java can mean starting with a new, appropriately granular, message / document oriented interface and letting a tool do the hard (depending on your view) work of generating WSDL and schema. Neither approach means you are doing code first or contract first development. Loosely coupled, appropriately granular, web service interfaces are about common sense first. Craig has more.
