Hi,


Great article, got great results in no time. Are there websites that describe how to create the scripts that run on the other side of the story, ie how do we write our own webservices in PHP for example ?

    Never mind, i figured it out. Just query your database or any other datasource, generate xml and spit it out. :-))

    Absolutely wonderful article !!

      Yup! All you need to do is parse the input and print out some XML.

      The key is publishing an API that people can depend on. I know Amazon's gone through three iterations of theirs, but they've always associated a new version with a slightly changed URL. So people can tell them apart and update accordingly.
