Sorry for the long dropout, but I've had a big work project.

Still working on Namespaces for LWxml.

14 May 2001

After some reflection, under the rubic of "more is better," I will do SOAP 1.1 and Squeak. Next step is getting LWxml to understand namespaces well.

Well, maybe not on the SOAP 1.1 and Squeak. It seems to have been done multiple times so this seems a bit pointless :-)

Let's get going on a SOAP server and client in Squeak. I have not actually done this yet so, this will be more of an exploration rather than a planned lesson.

One starts by downloading Squeak 3.0 and getting it running on your system.

Step 2 is to update squeak to 3.1alpha. Even though it is called an alpha release is really is quite stable. You can do this upgrade by either

Next download LWxml. LWxml is a very simple xml parser which is mostly stolen from Squeak's built in html parser. You can test it by typing:

op := LWxmlParser new.
[doc := (op parseStream: (StandardFileMenu oldFileStream)).] timeToRun.
doc explore.
in a Workspace window. You get a Workspace by clicking on the squeak desk top, selecting Open..., then selecting Workspace. Once you have typed this in select all of the text and run the do-it command, normally by typing clover d or alt d, depending on your system. This will bring up a file open dialog so you need to navigate to an xml file on your system.

If this has made 0 sense, you probably need to spend time learning Squeak on the Squeak Swiki

Ok, Genetic algorithms and the stock market looks a bit unsolvable, at least with the CPUs I have available. So I'm going to start a series on building a SOAP 1.1 server and client on Squeak. Note that Squeak runs on just about anything so this ports SOAP to many many systems. WinCE anyone?
