This course introduces students to web services: what web services are
and why they are significant in distributed application development,
the architecture of a web service, and web service standards and
specifications. In addition, students will learn about and use the
various underlying technologies of web services such as Simple Object
Access Protocol (SOAP), Web Service Description Language (WSDL),
Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI), Extensible
Markup Language (XML) and XML schema, and will explore some of the
newer, emerging technologies. Students will use ASP.NET, Web Forms,
and C# to develop and implement dynamic, client-side web-based
applications that employ web services, including ADO.NET s database
functionality. The course also covers the development of web services
that pass and validate data in XML format.
This is a 4th semester course.
Students must have the
prerequisite, PROG38081 - Java
and XML Programming, in order
to take this course.

Course Critical Performance and Learning Outcomes
Students will apply their problem solving and design skills to develop
and implement dynamic web-based applications utilizing the tools and
technologies of web services.
1. Describe what a web service is, the need for web services, and
the web service architecture.
2. Develop, test, and debug web-based applications and web services
using ASP.NET, C#, and web forms.
3. Develop, test, and debug web-based applications that use ADO.NET
4. Explain the purpose and need for technologies such as WSDL and
UDDI, and use them to describe, register, and search for web
5. Describe the structure of SOAP messages and customize SOAP
messages in a web service.
6. Develop and use a web service to process and validate data in XML
7. Examine and explore new and evolving technologies in web
Students demonstrate their learning in the following ways:
Assignments (2-3): 15%
In-Class Exercises: 5%

Please note that the professors teaching this course have agreed to
the following practices. We wish to encourage behaviours that will
help students to be successful in the workplace, and to ensure that
students receive credit for their individual work.
1. For submission of assignments and projects, the professor will
specify, in writing:
a) due dates and special instructions for submissions
b) deductions for overdue submissions
2. All assignments must be completed as individual efforts unless the
professor states otherwise in writing.
3. Tests must be written as scheduled by the professor. A makeup test
will only be provided to students who have an acceptable
explanation for their absence, or students who provide acceptable
documentation, such as a medical certificate, explaining their
absence. These special situations must be arranged as soon as
possible with the professor. There may be limitations on timing for
4. A student must average at least 50% on the tests combined in order
to receive credit for this course.
5. Professors reserve the right to adjust the number of quizzes,
assignments, etc. in the specified ranges. Students will be given
at least 2 weeks notice of adjustments inside the ranges.
