LEAD LOGO

Introduction

WS/XSUL 2.0: is designed to be the easiest way to create and access Web Services (regardless of location or protocol as long as they are described in WSDL and use XML Infoset) . This project has a specific goal to enable easy creation of Web Services for LEAD: Linked Environments for Atmospheric Discovery which is a project that is creating an integrated, scalable cyberinfrastructure for mesoscale meteorology research and education.

First steps

To get started programming quickly with XSUL2 read step-by-step programming guide.
