I am writing a simple web service interface for my own web photo album. I did Google search. You will tell me, PHP5 supports SOAP. Too bad, my web host company is still using PHP4(well, this is an option upgrade to PHP5, I still have not time to do that). Major options for PHP4, that is PEAR SOAP and NuSoap. I have used NuSoap before.Just I have checked their project page, the latest version is Aug ,2005. That seems to a bit old. Moreover, I wish to have a look other libraries too. Tonight I have a look on PEAR SOAP. That is fairly good. I have created an echo string application with my .Net 1.1. But that would hard for myself, because I am using third party webhost. PEAR SOAP required HTTP Request and NET Socket too. That would be a bit hassles to load them all into the live site. Well, the final decision is sticked with the old choice.
I cleaned up my home. I found I have a ton of not used or only used one or two times IT goods. I have wasted so much money on those things. I had two old plam PDA, but I have not used them so much. Moreover, I have a DVD burner and I have burned two DVDs. Luckily, I bought that similar with a CD-R burner.
Moreover, my computer is used to be a high-end one. Now, it isn't anymore.
I have a quick look on Turbo C# and SharpDevelop. Turbo C# has stronger functions on web application development. I test SharpDevelop 2.0. SharpDevelop has only limited functions on web application development. It seems to aim at a code editor for ASP.Net. But Turbo C# has a complete Rapid development interface for ASP.Net. Moreover, they have some debug function. You need to click "play", then the application will be launched. That 's simple and easy.
Well, SharpDevelop is a open source tool. I am still very happy about its functions. Moreover, it supports .Net 2.0.
