XML, SOAP, and Webservices
As I am looking deeper into M$ implementation of .NET and Webservices
I am slowly realizing that there must be something bigger in plan.
They are saying WebServices is a way to universal way to exchange data between "smart" devices and servers. For those of you that have taken a look at this then I'm sure you know that this is true, but where is this leading.
Microsoft is enabling all these devices w/ .NET so they can inturn talk to the webservices. How universal is it if you need .NET?
Maybe I'm just being a conspiracy theorist here, but they really are tackling the market with these things. People are adopting webservices left and right! From the way I see it they are trying (and sucessfully) creating a standard. The only problem is this standard requires .NET.
I figured I'd just post this as food for thought to the other techies here.
