Apple’s Developer Connection (ADC) Web site has posted a new article the
details the use of the Mozilla SOAP API.
“With the release of Mozilla 1.0, the world now has a browser that supports SOAP natively. No longer do the tasks of assembling, executing, and handling SOAP operations fall solely on the server side. A Web application running in Mozilla (or in a client using the same scripting engine, such as Netscape 7.0) can now make SOAP calls directly from the client without requiring a browser refresh or additional calls to the server. The data returned from a SOAP operation can be accessed via the same DOM Level 2 methods used to traverse any XML document.”
The article’s topics include Security Issues; Constructing the SOAP Message; Identifying Service Methods; Creating the SOAPCall; Retrieving Parameters; and many others.
The article also contains sample code using the Google API.
