I’m continually amazed at how long ‘old’ internet posts and articles stick around. While doing some digging into into a Java AJAX library for work, I ran across an article I had written for Java Developer’s Journal in 2003 titled “Mobile Webservices with kSOAP.”
Granted, this is a archived soft-copy of the print magazine article I’d written, so one might expect it to have a bit of longevity. That said, it’s interesting to look back 14 years at the state-of-the-art Internet and mobile technologies and compare them to where we are today.
As for me, I now have a teenage daughter and my most recent print article isn’t about Java or web services, but Canadian Destroyers–“The ‘Rolls Royce Destroyers’: Canada’s First Made-to-Order Warships” is now available for download at Canadian Naval Review. No need to hurry though–you might still be able to get it sometime in the next 14 years.
