bend over for SOAP

As my previous post might indicate I've been writing a lot of webservices lately and found the soapUI tool to be absolutely essentials and nearly irreplaceable. I've used XMLSpy and other more or less useless tools in the past, but not anymore..... Great work, guys!

Beam me up, SOA

I am currently doing some work for a large Danish financial institution. I am exposing some CICS based services as web services for their quite new and quite large SOA architecture. This is actually rather interesting and I've learned something new and got a few good ideas - I was due :-)

Harold Bluetooth

Dammit it's easy to setup a bluetooth connection to your cell/mobile phone and send a couple of Good Old(tm) AT commands to it, for sending and receiving SMS (text) messages.
I was merely giving it a shoot to see how hard it could be and it took me 8 minutes to setup, and send my first SMS from windows hyperterminal to my mobile phone over a bluetooth link. I think I'd make a small application from which I'm able to send text messages much faster than I am using the 0-9 keyboard style (I'm probably just too old for that shit :-) )

Well - just for the fun of it..
