deprecated IVOA Web Services Basic Profile

General Information
This record was deprecated on Oct. 2, 2016 for the following reason(s): The IVOA Web Services Basic Profile was deprecated in 2016. The reason for the deprecation is because of obsolete technology: the document describes the IVOA recommendation for implementing SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) web services. In the IVOA now, SOAP has been replaced with the REST (Representational State Transfer) as the best approach for implementing web services.

The IVOA Web Services Basic Profile describes rules to take into account when implementing SOAP-based web services for the Virtual Observatory. It explains also how to check conformance to these rules. It can be read as a "Guideline to VO Web Service Interoperability" or a "How to provide interoperable VO web services".
