Creating a Web Service with Web Matrix

The Web Matrix project appears to have served as a test bed in the development of ASP.NET. This freebie attracted a lot of attention since it did not require an installation of IIS. It had its own http server whenever needed. Of course, one could use it also in the presence of an installed IIS. This tutorial is about creating a web service on Web Matrix and testing the service on the built in mini web server, as well as testing a second example on the IIS 5.1 on the local machine.

UI Design with Java and XML Toolkits

XML has revolutionized application UI design in recent years. With a cunning blend of XML and script languages such as JavaScript, rich, aesthetically pleasing applications can be quickly constructed with ease. We've looked at Widgets and XUL as two examples of this in the past and now, I'm going to take a look at some of the innovative Java UI toolkits that implement XML as an integral mechanism for application II design. Please note, this is the first part of a two-part article.

XML Basics

XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language. XML is used to aid the exchange of data. The language makes it possible to define data in a structured way. XML tags are not predefined like HTML. XML lets you create your own unique tags that are meaningful for your data, hence the use of the term 'extensible.'
