One of the great things about web services is that it removes the language issue. You can write you code in whatever language you think fit, and other developers can use their language of choice. Web services provide a quick and easy end to the language wars – everyone wins…. Or do they?
While the principles of web services are generic, each language has its own features and developers like to see their code.
When we released our web services to provide a web service to convert PDF to HTML5 or SVG via the cloud, we initially produced examples in Java and PHP as the 2 most popular requests That still leaves a large number of possible options (Ruby, DotNet, Objective C, etc), hence this open question.
So what languages do you think are being used for Web services, and which one should we document next? What do you want to see?
This post is part of our “SVG Article Index” in these articles, we aim to help you build knowledge and understand SVG.
