HI,
RFID and Web Services seems to be away from the threshold of maturity.However I was wondering if I can start working on a project with these two technologies.
Any clues from industry gurus will be highly appreciated.
Sun has released its RFID software only for Solaris Operating Environment.
Is there a way to implement an application using J2EE, Web Services, RFID in Windows?

Thank You,
Ann

I can't see that it would make any difference to a Web Service whether the data comes from RFID or from another data source. Once you get the RFID data into the system, creating a service should follow pretty standard approaches.
What sort of RFID hardware is availble for Windows?

I have no idea about RFID, but I can say Web Services technology is not as immature as it may appear at first glance.
A lot of companies are using it nowaydays (including mine), for commercial applications (banking, trading, B2B, B2C). Implementations are numerous and compliant with standards

And just like Bill, I don't see how RFID could be a problem for web services, as it should appear as any other data source.

Thank You Bill and Jean. My concern was how I would integrate my application with RFID hardware. But I found out that from an RFID vendor that they are providing their API's written in C for integration.
Hopefully this should solve my problem.

Thanks,
Ann
