|Research & Development||Emerging Technologies|
A Web service is a software component that can be published, located and invoked over the Internet using open standards, such as XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI.
By enabling application-to-application communications across different platforms and programming languages, Web services represent a major advancement in distributed computing. Web services promote software reusability and facilitate many business processes, such as simplifying B2B interactions and improving partner relationships.
Web services will have a profound impact on computing and enterprise applications in 2002. We are publishing several Web services books, including two in the launch of our Deitel™ Developer Series—Java Web Services and Web Services: A Technical Introduction. Additional Web services titles, including C# Web Services and Visual Basic .NET Web Services will be published in the Deitel™ Developer Series. In addition to these new publications, many of our How to Program Series texts include substantial discussions of Web services.

Deitel & Associates, Inc., is committed to supporting both established and emerging programming languages. As a part of our commitment, we are working with Clear Methods, Inc., a company that has developed a new programming language called Water.
Water is a general-purpose, object-oriented programming language that uses an XML syntax for describing data, for presentation and for code. Water is flexible, easy to learn, and its design makes it well-suited for developing Web applications and Web services.
Several Deitel employees serve on the Clear Methods, Inc., Board of Advisors and have equity positions in the company. The Deitel™ Buzz Online will feature Water articles and tutorials as this new language develops.
For more information about Water, please visit www.waterlang.org.

|Challenge of the Week||Lore & Legend of Deitel & Associates|
We anticipate the day that we will be able to converse easily with our computers. This kind of communication via natural languages (like English, French, Swahili, etc.) could suffer from ambiguity problems. For example, what product is manufactured at an entity called the "red-brick factory?"
Send your answers to email@example.com. We look forward to your responses and we will summarize them in the next issue of the Deitel™ Buzz Online.
How the How to Program Series Was Born
In 1991, when Pascal was still the dominant language in introductory
computer science courses, Harvey and Paul Deitel set out to write an
entry-level college textbook on C programming. They were having trouble
determining a title for the book. They wanted a title that would convey
the purpose of the book—teaching in a friendly manner the C language that
was considered complex for a nonprogramming audience. They were becoming
increasingly frustrated. Abbey Deitel, then a freshman at Carnegie Mellon
University, heard the commotion. Always the mediator, Abbey asked if she
could help. Harvey and Paul described the problem. Abbey instantly
responded, "C How to Program—you know, like see spot run," and then
quietly went about her business. Harvey and Paul looked and each other
dumbfounded and said, "That's it! How does she do that?" C How to Program became the best-selling C
introductory/intermediate programming textbook and spawned the Deitel™
How to Program Series. One year later, Abbey was
hired by Deitel & Associates, Inc., as a marketing intern. Today, she
is President and Chief Operating Officer of the company.
