« IEEE Computer Society Meeting (5/19/2005... | Main | XML Schema Design Styles »

Everything starts from the data and the only truth that exists is on the wire!

I've been doing a lot of work these days with web services that are designed to be Interoperable.  The primary driver is the existence of multiple web service stacks in my environment including Apache Axis, BEA, .NET and more.  I am not going to get into the Code-First vs. WSDL/Schema-First debate. I personally believe that you can significantly minimize the number of Interop issues if you start from the Schema rather than the Code..... provided that you start from a constrained subset of the schema that is supported by your target web service stacks.

As such, it is very important that you follow good practices when designing your schema. I've come across some resources that I use and recommend and thought that I would share them.
