This project was undertaken to provide a better understanding of what a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) using Web Service is; the various artifacts involved; recommended tools needed in order to build to an SOA; and a demonstration of how a .NET system can easily interact with a Java system using Web Service technologies.

As a result of this project a fully functional ASP .NET client system will interact with a Java Customer Profile service. Two heterogeneous environments that once would have cost companies significant amount of time and dollar to integrate, now are easily integrated using Web Service technology.
