Course Outline
The goal of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills that are required to develop Extensible Markup Language (XML) Web services-based solutions to solve common problems in the distributed application domain. The course focuses on using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and Microsoft ASP.NET to enable students to build, deploy, locate, and consume Web services.

Course Outline

Module 1: The Need for XML Web Services

This module provides students with an understanding of the problem space that Web services address. The module compares various approaches to implementing distributed applications. Because the Web services in this course are implemented by using Microsoft ASP.NET and the Microsoft .NET Framework, alternate options for implementing distributed applications by using the .NET Framework are discussed to better define what kinds of solutions Web services are appropriate for.

After completing this module, you will be able to explain how Web services emerged as a solution to the problems with traditional approaches to designing distributed applications. This includes:
  • Describing the evolution of distributed applications.
  • Identifying the problems with traditional distributed application architectures and technologies.
  • Describing Web services and briefly explaining how they address the design problems in traditional distributed applications.
  • Listing the alternate options for distributed application development.
  • Identifying the kinds of scenarios where Web services are an appropriate solution.
Module 2: XML Web Service Architectures

This module broadly describes the service-oriented architecture, which is a conceptual architecture. Then, the module explains the roles and how Web service architectures are a type of service-oriented architecture.

After completing this module, you will be able to describe the architecture of a Web services-based solution. This includes:
  • Identifying how Web service architectures are a type of service-oriented architecture.
  • Describing the elements of a Web service architecture and explaining their roles.
  • Describing the Web service programming model.
Module 3: The Underlying Technologies of XML Web Services

After completing this module, you will be able to describe the underlying technologies of Web services and explain how to use the .NET Framework to implement Web services by using these technologies.

This includes:
  • Describing the structures of an HTTP request and response.
  • Issuing HTTP POST and GET requests and processing the responses by using the .NET Framework. Describing data types by using the XML Schema Definition language (XSD).
  • Explaining how to control the way a .NET Framework object is serialized to XML.
  • Describing the structures of a Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) request and response.
  • Issuing a SOAP request and processing the response by using the .NET Framework.
Module 4: Consuming XML Web Services

After completing this module, you will be able to implement a Web service consumer by using Visual Studio .NET.

This includes:
  • Explaining the structure of a Web Service Description Language (WSDL) document.
  • Explaining the Web services discovery process.
  • Locating service contracts by using Disco.exe.
  • Generating Web service proxies by using Wsdl.exe.
  • Implementing a Web service consumer by using Visual Studio .NET.
  • Invoking a Web service synchronously and asynchronously by using a Web service proxy.
Module 5: Implementing a Simple XML Web Service

This includes:
  • Creating a Web service project.
  • Implementing Web service methods, exposing them, and controlling their behavior.
  • Managing state in an ASP.NET-based Web service.
  • Debugging Web services.
Module 6: Publishing and Deploying XML Web Services

This module teaches students how to deploy and publish Web services and locate Web services by using the Microsoft Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) software development kit (SDK). A local development UDDI registry is used in the demonstrations for this module, but the mechanics of publishing and finding Web services is no different on the public UDDI registry nodes.

After completing this module, you will be able to publish and deploy a Web service. This includes:
  • Explaining the role of UDDI in Web services.
  • Publishing a Web service in a UDDI registry by using the UDDI SDK.
  • Searching a UDDI registry to locate Web services by using the UDDI SDK.
  • Explaining the various options for publishing a Web service on an intranet.
  • Explaining some of the options for modifying the default configuration of a Web service.
Module 7: Securing XML Web Services

This module teaches students how to use the security services of the Microsoft Windows operating system, Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), and the.NET Framework and common language runtime to secure Web services.

After completing this module, you will be able to secure a Web service. This includes:
  • Identifying the differences between authentication and authorization.
  • Explaining how to use the security mechanisms that Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and Windows provide for authentication.
  • Using SOAP headers for authentication in a Web service.
  • Using role-based security and code access security for authorization in a Web service.
  • Encrypting the communication between a Web service consumer and a Web service.
Module 8: Designing XML Web Services

This module teaches students which design issues to consider when designing real-world Web services. The issues discussed are related to data type constraints, performance, reliability, versioning, deployment in Internet Service Provider (ISP) and Application Service Provider (ASP) scenarios, and aggregating Web services. The module also discusses HTML screen scraping as a pseudo Web service.

After completing this module, you will be able to evaluate the trade-offs and issues that are involved in designing a real-world Web service. This includes:
  • Identifying the restrictions that are imposed on data types by the various Web services protocols.
  • Explaining how the use of Application and Session state can affect the performance and scaling of Web services.
  • Explaining how to use output and data caching to improve Web service performance.
  • Implementing caching in a Web service.
  • Explaining how asynchronous Web service methods can improve performance.
  • Explaining the need for instrumenting Web services.
  • Identifying the components of a Web service that can be versioned.
  • Explaining how to implement a virtual Web service by using screen scraping.
  • Implementing a Web service that uses multiple Web services.
  • Identifying the trade-offs in the techniques that are used for exposing aggregated Web services.
Module 9: Global XML Web Services Architecture

This module teaches students how to use the security services of the Microsoft Windows operating system, IIS, and the .NET Framework and common language runtime to secure Web services.

After completing this module, you will be able to:
  • Describe limitations inherent to the specifications with which today¬Ä(TM)s Web services are built.
  • Describe the design principles and specifications of Global XML Web services Architecture (GXA).
  • Describe Web service application scenarios made possible by Web Services Routing Protocol (WS-Routing) and Web Services Referral Protocol (WS-Referral).
  • Explain how to use Web Services Security Language (WS-Security) and Web Services License Language (WS-License) to perform authentication and authorization for Web services.
  • Design Web services that anticipate and can leverage the features that GXA will offer when released

The course content was excellent ... if there was things that weren't relevant you could skip and spend more time on things that you needed to learn. Training provider was excellent as her skill level was superb and her communication skills were superb.

I was not able to finish the whole entire course. When creating course training please make sure that it fits the allotted time (beginning to the end). We had two breaks and Instructor did not allow us to listen to the course. I had maybe another 10 mins to finish the whole course, but the Instructor said that it was 4:30pm and it is Ok and we can go home. It is not Ok not to be able to finish the course..

Mentored training actually worked quite well for me. The instructor is there in the room all the time, available if needed. A lot of material for one day, but I did manage to complete it without feeling too rushed.

It is not possible to complete a beginner's course in one day. There is a lot of information to absorb. It is wonderful that one can re-sit a session within a limited time.

To bottom line my feelings about the course: Course -- helpful but this comment is made with reservations. Instructor -- excellent !

The course material was far too heavy for the duration of the course. The material needs to be reduced so that students do not feel rushed or pressured with time, or the duration of the class needs to be extended.

Overall, the course has been well handled by the Training Provider. But i would expect that, somehow, there is a time allotted in the afternoon for more visible and face to face interaction between the TP and the whole class. Others may be asking questions that may not have been thought of by other learners but may be helpful.

re Instructor assessment. ques. are N/A as it was independant mentored study. Flash based training module had 1 hiccup where ctrl-b key was captured by OS and I had to hunt for alt-b to complete the module. Class mentor was unaware of flaw. I felt that the design of the module would have prevented me from completing the section if I was unable to locate alternative keystroke. Worthwhile day.

Using the self-teaching method made for a more relaxed working environment. As the instructor's assistance was on a one-on-one basis I was not hesitate to ask questions.

Would prefer an instructor led (classroom) style of training over a computer based course.

I would suggest that the course manual contain more visual material (e.g. screen shots) versus words. The course was very well. I did not think I would like the on line method of training but I did. I also liked the fact that I could work through my lunch to complete the course earlier. I had to catch the go train so it worked better for me.

I only realized after completing 2 units thoroughly that there is not enough time allotted for a lot practicing. I would tell students in advance that getting through the videos and practicing later in your own time is recommended.

Enjoyed the flexibility of the "Modern Classroom" style of learning where you can move at your own pace and focus on what you need most. You can even move to the next chapter if you need help and the instructor is busy. Definitely dress warmly as the classroom was really over air-conditioned!
