The first time I was required to connect to a web service, I had no idea where to start, and ended up doing things the hard way. I needed to connect to a REST like web service in order to process a credit card transaction. I was coding in php at the time, and created all of my http headers from scratch and sent my request using fsockopen and very low-level function calls. Well, there’s a much easier way to do things. Here are some resources to help you connect to web services.
If you’ve never connected to a web service before, it is really easy! Yahoo has some cool web services to try out, so have at it!
