Luc De Brouwer's Blog:
Web services and backward compatibility
August 05, 2010 @ 12:44:02

Luc De Brouwer has a reminder for web services developers out there - don't forget about backwards compatibility.

About a year ago I was asked by a client to update their existing web service because of some changes in the way they wanted to process their sales data. Luckily this client has always understood the importance of a Service-Oriented Architecture ( SOA ) since they deal with large amounts of resellers who need to access, edit and create data. All I had to do was apply the changes to their web service.

He lists the steps he followed when making the update - thinking about backwards compatibility, evaluating current functionality for use and possibly decommissioning older pieces.
