Small Project to evaluate options and setting up prototypes / 3 examples.
a) Web Service Client C++ (in VS 2010) to call a webservice The client running under Win7 and (if possible) under XP
b1) Web Service ASP / VB.net
b2) Web Service Tomcat / Java
returning data from a table (as list of records).
a) Webserice call from client: send FIeld name and table t1 (fields: trnr)
b) Webservice: reading SQL DB (say MS SQL or Postgres) table t2 (K: name , trnr, F: value)
and return table t3 (fields trnr, value) and Field (return = "OK" if a vlaue was found in t2).
Evaluate best technique for C++ client (for VS2010!, License type)
Compare Java / VB.net approach
Coding for C++ VS2010 for the client
Coding for .net ready to deploy the prototype / example on IIS
Coding for Java ready to deploy the prototype / example on tomcat
This is (as you can see) a starting point, more projects may come.
As Milestones we could set:
(1) = a) & b1) Websevice in ASP/ VB.net and C++ client (VS2010)
(2) = b2) Webservice in Java / Tomcat
(3) C++ client (VS2010) calling Java/Tomcat-Webservice - potential adjustments
You would need IIS and Apache Environmant on your side for development.
We have a test box.
