Here we are at Oracle Open World to showcase the SOAPbox release 1.4! This show represents the official launch of the product line past the beta and early adoptors stage!
Our product has been well received so far but I was struck how people that are expert DBAs have little or no knowledge of web services. While I understand that web services reside on the application tier and not the database tier, the extension of the database is now the accessible via the web. As web services multiply the impact it will have on the database is enormous. As a DBA I would want some tools to help me control how these services utilize my database I/O and have a hand in crafting these services as 80% plus of web services are simply CRUD operations with a HTTP wrapper.
