So, what should our service do? My friend and colleague, Mark Volkmann, introduced the eample of a database of music information. In this example, the service service contains information about several kinds of resources:
- Music artists (Artists)
With this service we can explore not only traditional browser-based HTML, but XML and even an Ajax client using JSON. We can also use it as testbed for things like caching, security, clustering/failover, and composition of services.
