Which of the following types of Web services does Domino Designer 8 support?
- Consumer Web services only
- Provider Web services only
- Consumer and provider Web services
- Web services are not supported in Domino Designer 8.
C. Consumer and provider Web services
In Release 8 of Domino Designer, provider and consumer Web services are supported.
Provider Web services, first supported In Release 7 of Domino Designer, are created using the Web service design element. This type of Web service enables a developer to create a Web service and host it on a Domino server.
Consumer Web services are new with Release 8 of Domino Designer. A consumer Web service is a Web service called by the Notes application and hosted elsewhere. Instead of using a design element, a consumer Web service in Domino Designer is created by enabling a script library to call the Web service. The Web service-enabled script library is then incorporated into an agent, action, etc.
