Web Services is very much the buzz phrase of today, here Bob Swart shows how to use the new SOAP capabilities of Delphi 6 to create your very own Web Services as easy as pie.
When I wrote last month, Delphi 6 had just been announced but was not yet available. Delphi 6 has now been available for a short while, and I've been playing with my copy of Delphi 6 Enterprise, especially with the new SOAP support, which is most notably featured in the new functionality called Web Services.
