Pushing the SOAP Envelope With Web Services for Scientific Computing ==================================================================== <p align="right"><i>by Robert A. van Engelen, published in the proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Web Services 2003</i></p> This paper investigates the usability, interoperability, and performance issues of SOAP/XML-based Web and Grid Services for scientific computing. Several key issues are addressed that are important for the deployment of high-performance and mission-critical SOAP/XML-based services. A successful deployment can be achieved by limiting the overhead of XML encoding through exploiting XML schema extensibility to define optimized XML data representations and by reducing message passing latencies through message chunking, compression, routing, and streaming. ![Download](images/pdf.png) [Article](articles/icws2003.pdf) <p align="right"><i>Copyright (c) 2018, Robert van Engelen, Genivia Inc.
