Web Services Interoperability Video

by Jeff Barr | on |

MSDN is hosting a new streamable video, “Top Ten Tips for Web Services Interoperability“. In this video, Microsoft’s Simon Guest discusses a number of concrete ways to create services which will earn top marks in the “plays well with others” category. Topics covered include:

  1. Empty arrays
  2. Package names
  3. Testing for null
  4. Avoiding null dates
  5. Date comparisons
  6. Using a trace tool
  7. Using alternate ports
  8. Unit tests
  9. Document Literal
  10. XSD

There is a lot of good information here, much of it relevant to service callers as well as to service implementers.
