SOAP and Data Discovery

SOAP and Data Discovery

Post by Gary Huntres » Fri, 23 Nov 2001 12:47:10

I think that I've got a handle on the basics of SOAP.  I've done a few
examples with sample code and I've written some basic client and server

The thing I'm not sure about is the "data discovery" part.   Suppose I know
that someone is offering a SOAP service on a particular webserver but I
don't know the format of their public functions.   Is there supposed to be a
protocol that will document functions that are available and the in/out

1. Automated discovery of RSS

I want to use a client program to display headline changes for websites.
The client I am using (Watznew and KlipFolio) effectively do text searches
and display the results of the searches.

RSS files are perfect to do this - however, I have to write the
administrator of each website and hope they divulge the name/path of the RSS

Is there any automated way, tool/script or otherwise, to discover the
existence of an RSS file?
