Numerous services on the internet as well as within companies are based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). This client was developed during my study and it can be used to introduce the basic approaches of SOA and also the basic standards of Web Services (WSDL, SOAP, UDDI). Numerous services and UDDI registries can be accessed directly from Mozilla Firefox without any installation of complex test environments.
At present this portable client can handle only basic data types of XML schema. The parsing mechanism will be improved soon.
I want to thank everyone for their support, especially to ICS AG (http://www.ics-ag.de) and IAS (http://www.ias.uni-stuttgart.de).
