|How to Implement HTNG Web Services|
If you already have experience writing web services, you should be able to visit our Specifications page, download what you need, and do what you are used to doing. However, if you have limited experience in writing web services, or if you run into questions about the specs, you may find these resources to be useful.
These resources require a current HTNG membership and login credentials. If you work for a company that has a current membership but do not have your own login, you can request one. Otherwise, join HTNG to get access.
Developer's Quick Start Guide
Implementing Web Services Using HTNG Specifications, A Quick Start Guide for Software Developers serves as a step-by-step reference for HTNG members who need assistance in quickly creating web services based upon published HTNG specifications. This is intended to be a living document and will expand in content based up-on member feedback.
The first release covers implementation using Java (with the Metro stack) in a NetBeans IDE. Future versions will likely cover Microsoft C# and additional Java Frameworks (including Eclipse and Axis).
HTNG Discussion Board
One of the best resources available to you is the Implementers' Discussion area on the HTNG Discussion Board. Search the board to the answer to your question, or start a new thread. Our membership community has extensive experience in many areas, and people are always willing to help. HTNG's technical staff also monitor the discussion as well and will help when they can.
We have received feedback from our members that they would like access to a testing system. We are working toward this in three phases.
