On this page, you can find links to all resources available for connecting C and C++ code and web services. Windows Web Services API (WWSAPI) is a unified framework for building SOAP based web services and clients to them. It provides the support for the core WS-* and .NET-* protocols around building SOAP services. You can use WWSAPI in components and applications that fall into one of the following categories:
· Native code mandate and taking dependency on .Net Framework is not acceptable
· Require high throughput on the server side
· Require very small working set during runtime
· Minimal dependencies can be used
· Need for minimal startup time
· Memory constrained environments
Below are groups of links to resources available to help you to start using WWSAPI in your product.
o Headers, libraries and tools are part of Windows SDK for Windows 7.
o Video recording of an introduction to Windows Web Services during PDC 2008
§ Slides and source code for the demo you can find here
o Video recording of the session at TechEd 2009 about advantages of using native C/C++ code to build web services and description of key steps involved
