How to build a web service without the use of .Net Framework?

P: n/a
Hi,

I have a question: How to build a web service without the use of .Net
Framework?
For an instance how to do it with C++?

I have used web services based on ASP.NET in the past and it is very easy
and comfy to do.
In the current project architecture I can not use .Net because of the
following topology:
Platforms
Windows 2000 and 2003 with IIS but as a customer production web server I can
not install .Net Framework
Linux and other type of UNIX platforms
Networks
A Central Management Application (of my own) should be capable to converse
with web service or other in the remote (different LANs') on the above
platforms.
Is there a web service infrastructure without the use of .Net?
What is the alternative remote communication solutions across LANs'?

Thanks in advance,

Oren.

I believe gSOAP is a popular solution for C++, though haven't used it
myself.

Do you have another server to use? I don't think it's worth your effort
not to use the .NET framework for web services.

Otherwise you can use the Classic ASP SOAP Toolkit (obsolete), or Java?

If you're going to program in C++ you'll have to write an ISAPI filter ...
and there is a MUCH greater chance of the filter killing the server than
the .NET runtime OR a badly written .NET application.
