Deploying a Python Service on Axis2

Apache Axis2/Java, is a popular open source Web service engine. It currently supports exposing services written in Java, Javascript and Ruby as Web services. This article discusses the Python data Binding that enable exposing Web services written in Python.

Axis2/Java is now able to expose a service written Python as a Web service. The underlying deployer will read the annotations and perform data-binding, schema generation. Schema generated will be passed on to the Axis2 engine, which will then perform the WSDL generation. Thereafter, a client is able to invoke the service using the WSDL generated.

Invoking Enterprise Web Services using Jython

This article discusses the usage of WSO2 WSF/Jython API to write Web service clients in Jython. WSF/Jython's Jython-Client API can be used to write a Jython service clients. It supports attachments with MTOM, SOAP, REST and WS-* standards such as WS-Addressing, WS-Security.

Tool for writing TeX/LaTeX documents in Windows and Linux

I came across this tool a few months back when I had to write my literature survey. LyX combines the power and flexibility of TeX/LaTeX with the ease of use.Using this tool is like using MS Office or OpenOffice. It is a GUI based tool and you do not have to write a single line of code to make a LaTex document. It is having an installer for windows and Linux distributions.

My Presentation @ WSO2 - WSF/Jython

Every week we are having an Internal Presentation at WSO2. This week I did a presentation on the project I worked on during my internship with WSO2 - WSF/Jython.This framework helps to expose python scripts as web services through the Python Deployer and write service clients using the WSF/Jython API. I am planning to do a WSO2 WSF/Jython release by next week. I have written some articles to OT on using this API. The articles will be published with the release as well. Therefore I am looking foreward to next week. :)
