I have spent some time preparing on a topic on WSDL and I will present this in our March 2005 SgDotNet gathering.


With all the power of abstractions that most major IDEs to today offer, inner technical plumbings are often ignored and worst - Misrepresented and Misunderstood. This can lead to choosing the wrong technologies and solutions to solving specific problems. When it comes down to troubleshooting the nooks, crannies and crevices at crunch time with no extra help, nothing beats a dirty pair of hands, a hammer and a screwdriver. William attempts to get everyone's hands dirty with a detailed look at what transcends within one of the most core and matured XML Service Technologies of today.

Some of the things that will be covered:

  1. What is WSDL
  2. Critical role in Service-Orientation
  3. Core Elements and Definitions
  4. Discovery Views
  5. Best Practices (Interoperability, Extensibility, Versioning)
  6. Coming soon to a parser near you: WSDL 1.2 ? …or is it… WSDL 2.0 ? >>> If we have time
  7. RPC-Encoding Vs Doc-Literal WSDL Concepts in Indigo >>> If we have time

If you are available or around the area on the 10th of March 2005, why not drop by Microsoft Singapore and sit in ?

The difference between this presentation and the ones I had done before for our own usergroup is that I am representing INETA APAC in this event. Thus I will be speaking in the context of a speaker from the INETA APAC Speaker Bureau. I really hope that INETA APAC can sort out some of their administrative details in time and be able to subsidize some of the pizza money for the food we intend to have. Heck, this is the only way I know how to keep some of them awake while staring at the monotonous angle brackets...

Register yourself here.
