Description Martijn 2004-10-06 23:08:07 UTC
I think an XML webservice interface should be added to the validator. So that we 
can call it transparently from an application written in a modern programming 
language like C#, Java or Delphi.

What do you mean by "XML webservice interface" exactly? Something like maybe?
Comment 2 Martijn 2004-10-06 23:17:49 UTC
I just mean a plain XML webservice. You know, a SOAP/WSDL thingy that can be 
imported as a WebReference in a .NET project. I can't imagine you not knowing 
what that is :)
Comment 3 Olivier Thereaux 2004-10-06 23:46:21 UTC
I think Bjoern meant to link to
which is likely to become a proper Soap1.2 service sooner (or/than) later.
Comment 4 Martijn 2004-10-07 17:24:58 UTC
I don't know the XML output already existed. Maybe that could be useful as well. 
However SOAP/WSDL would be much better, because it's easier to handle from the 
perspective of a programmer.

SOAP API added in 0.7.3. closing.
