Parasoft's Kolawa Foresees An "Explosion of Web Services" in 2007

"Because they are so easy to expose," says Dr Adam Kolawa

Parasoft co-founder and CEO, Dr Adam Kolawa, anticipates a significant demand for Web services orchestration in the upcoming year, especially in the United States. "Many organizations now have at least one Web service," Kolawa explains, in a contribution to this month's JDJ, "and a growing number already have two or more related Web services. Managing multiple related Web services is considerably more challenging than managing the same number of separate, unrelated Web services."

Kolawa continues: "To use these related Web services to achieve your business goals, you need to consider how high-level operations pass through the Web services, then determine how to implement this high-level flow- from start to finish. This can be accomplished in two ways:
- By programmatically coding the application logic required to tie the involved elements together.
- By using an orchestration tool to direct the flow through the involved elements, which remain separate.
I predict that the latter method will be the favorite because it is easier."

Kolawa adds that he also expects "an explosion of Web services" in 2007. "They are so easy to expose," he notes. "Once exposed, Web services basically create interfaces which can be reused. This will significantly reduce the amount of code that needs to written, which will in turn cut the demand for 'bare bones' development."

Kolawa's comments form part of this month's JDJ feature, "Where is i-Technology Headed in 2007?" which has been read by 26,000+ people since it was published. The feature has become an annual ritual, and every year - writes the informal poll's instigator Jeremy Geelan - the answers "are surprisingly different from the year before," even though his question to SYS-CON's its globe-girdling network of software developers, industry executives, commentators, investors, writers, and editors is always the same: where's the industry going next year?

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
