java / web services
Posted on 2005-04-07
I need to write some server-side java files. The java will generate a successful token which can be stored in a db until a user logs out
Once the security java classes have been written I need to create a web service where 3rd parties can log in, this talks to my server-side java files generates the token and allows any 3rd party in to access information on our db.
The java and web service have to be secure, so i'm thinking of Apaxhe Axis, http, SSL, XML and creating a WSDL file.
Because I'm new to all this I really have no idea where to start
Has anyone written a logon web service and can give me some advice?
Am I right in writing the java files first to get the security under wraps and then write the web service to gain access to our db so 3rd parties can get their info. The data the 3rd party can have access to will come down in a XML formatted file (the WSDL file) for the 3rd party to do with what they please
Thanks in advance
