Advanced Feature Description

Chapter 2, "Invoking a Web Service Using Asynchronous Request-Response"

Invoke a Web service asynchronously.

Chapter 3, "Using Web Services Reliable Messaging"

Create a reliable Web service, as specified by the WS-ReliableMessaging specification, and then create a client Web services that invokes the reliable Web service.

Chapter 4, "Creating Conversational Web Services"

Create a conversational Web service which communicates with a client.

Chapter 6, "Using the Asynchronous Features Together"

Use the asynchronous features, such as reliable messaging, asynchronous request-response, and conversations, together in a single Web service.

Chapter 7, "Using Callbacks to Notify Clients of Events"

Notify a client of a Web service that an event has happened by programming a callback.

Chapter 5, "Creating Buffered Web Services"

Create a buffered Web service, which is a simpler type of reliable Web service that one specified by the WS-ReliableMessaging specification.

Chapter 8, "Using JMS Transport as the Connection Protocol"

Specify that JMS, rather than the default HTTP/S, is the connection protocol when invoking a Web service.

Chapter 9, "Creating and Using SOAP Message Handlers"

Create and configure SOAP message handlers for a Web service.
