Web services work? Sweden deploys Java web services to expose real-time referendum results

asj
Just when I say web services may be hyped, here comes a news report
that says Swedish Referendum Results will be delivered in real time
over the internet using Java web services.

In one sense, exposing the real-time results as a web service is sorta
cool, since other apps can tie in to it and distribute the info to
multiple targets. n the other hand, wouldn't deploying the
information via HTML be easier for the majority of people who can
simplu use their browsers. Does this mean people actually need to
download and use a "client" to view the results? Or will we see a
situation where third party web sites can display the info for people
by tying into the web service?

On Sunday, September 14, 2003, the Swedish electorate will discover
whether the country will join the European Monetary Union (EMU) and
adopt the Euro currency. As the voting takes place, the Swedish
Election Authority, which is responsible for organizing and managing
the country's elections and referendums, will deliver the results in
real time over the Internet.

The Web Services that are employed by the applications retrieve data
from XML files over the Internet and then distribute that information
to clients via the Internet. The applications themselves are built in
Java and are deployed using Cape Clear's Web Services platform. Init
has also published sample clients online for Microsoft Excel, Java,
and Perl.

What you are seeing is the maturing of the media. If I have a new show I
want to put on TV, I don't build a TV station. I send it to the stations
that already have the viewers, and they distribute it. That is the model
here. The existing web sites that would have this info on their sites will
be able to pick it up, and display it for their clients. This really is the
model for the future (at least for a few years ;) )
