Hi,
I was trying to learn a little bit of WebServices using mainly Tomcat, Apache SOAP for Java. I find this new and upcoming technology amazing and THE thing for the future. I wrote a very basic webservice using a single stand-alone Java class as my first WebService. I would like to develop some better WebServices.

It would be great if someone could please give me some tips as in how do you interface with a website such as CNN or BBC or NASDAQ to obtain the requested information ? For. eg if I wish to perform a search on Google using a user provided keyword ... how do I go about building a web service for the same ?
Thanks in advance,
Anoop

Hi,
U may need to look into the architecture of the B2B Web Server of WebMethods. They have these services called WIDL services. U can create ur own services to contact a website and parse that website content for useful information. www.webmethods.com
look www.w3.org to learn about WIDL services development.
Regards,

Hello friends,
I have learnt how to use Webmethods and use it for my requirement. But how do I integrate it with my server(in this case its WebLogic).
What I mean is I have developed a page which retrieves certain information from our partner site( HTML Scrapping ) using web Methods. Now How do I integrate this with WebLogic .
(I am not too sure if this is the right forum to place this enquiry and hence Moderators please excusew me if I place this in some other forum as well).
Thanks in advance,
Milan Doshi

Thanks Dan for the URL, but I am supposed to use only WebMethods for the project. So any idea how do I go about integrating webmethods with Weblogic.
Thanks,
