Choosing a free tool to develop Web Services

Discussion in 'Java' started by Araxes Tharsis, Dec 18, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    I am beginning to design a Java application that accesses a mainframe with
    IBM Host On-Demand, and should expose its functionalities to
    ..NET/VB6/C++/Java applications through Web Services. I don't want to use any
    Application Servers, so I was wondering what should be the best, and no
    cost, approach:

    - JAX-RPC (explained in Sun Web Services Tutorial)?;
    - Apache Axis ?;
    - Systinet WASP (free for one CPU)?;
    - IBM WSDK ?

    Any comments appreciated.
    Thank you very much,
    Araxes Tharsis

    No app servers - are you hosting one on the mainframe? JAX-RPC is slow, IBM
    is proprietary, check into Axis and Soap And WSDL. Soap is the language of
    interoperability.
