Subject:   How can I learn about creating web services for a database that infopath doesn't natively support?

As I have been reading around the net, I see that while Infopath can support interacting with Excel, Access, and SQL Server, it doesn't natively interact with other databases such as Oracle, etc.


In the articles that I read, the suggestion is always to write your infopath to interact with a web service.


I've not yet found an article or book that describes how best to create a web service that can then be used with infopath to perform this type of functionality.


I was wondering if there were suggestions on best places to read about ways to develop such a thing.
