    Lots of talk of web sites but no mention of web services'that I've seen. Does anybody have experiance developing webservices and more importantly (to me) what frameworks have yáll found to be useful and easy to work with?

    I've had to work with Globus a few times and although it works it's a real pain to get used to. Hard to install, hard to configure etc... Anybody tried JavaEE for instance?

    Not from me, I just consume them. I doubt many are developing and publishing web services here.

    I do project manage a few web services projects, we tend to use PHP/MySQL. The platforms you mentioned are used mainly by large organisations with lots of money to throw about.

    Yeah I guess WS platforms aren't your typical bread and butter web technologies today. I don't agree that these platforms are just for large organizations with large budgets though, I mean both Globus and J2EE are free.

    The reason I asked is I'm just fishing for peoples experiences and opinions on these platforms. In the early nineties the www emerged and changed the way people thought about computing. The service oriented architecture will do the same. It's already happening, albeit slowly. I'm not just talking about access to data but the whole pie. Access to software services, storage, hardware resources, you name it. At the enterprise level you've got HP, Sun, Amazon and so on offering hardware services. (I think their pricing models are flawed). Then there's projects like SETI and EINSTEIN@home using private individuals spare cycles. Software service? Google apps. Not too hot right now but this is the way it's going...

    I'm getting a bit tired and can't think of a good way to sum up what I'm trying to say here but I'm talking about not so much a paradigm shift but a natural evolution. The SOA, the www and more generally the Internet will be central to this shift...
