Ok so here is the deal I am looking to set up some sort of API (in XML using soap hopefully) between DB2 and a VB.Net/ application. I am fairly new to web services but the reason I want to try and use XML is so it is easily ported into other applications. I am looking for some good resources, I have already ordered a book for MCAD 70-310 but I would also like to know if there are any Hello World (aka simplified) tutorials or anything I can use to get started. Thanks in advance guys.
