Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the history of web services, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Services.
According to one story, the term web service was first uttered…by Bill Gates at a software conference in July of 2000.…But, the concept of two computers communicating…with each other to share business information,…and speaking in a shared vocabulary with…a strongly defined set of protocols, wasn't new.…The concept had been around since before the internet was invented.…One of the earliest…implementations of web service style architecture is…known as EDI, or Electronic Data Interchange.…
EDI was documented in 1996 by the National Institute Of Standards And Technology.…As the computer to computer interchange of strictly…formatted messages that represent documents other than monetary instruments.…In other words, EDI was…designed to go beyond financial transactions and enable the…movement of data back and forth over the internet.…It was originally designed for large-scale e-commerce.…But its also used for all sorts…of business transactions including invoicing and payments.…
