WWSAPI

Sep 6, 2013 at 8:32 PM
I wrote a WWSAPI server app a few years ago. At the time there was a lot of controversy about not supporting XP etc.. In any case I got it working and it is still working fine. Now I need to do another one and after looking around it seems that nobody is talking about WWSAPI anymore. Has C++ REST SDK replaced it as the Microsoft suggested route to writing a C++ Windows Web Service? I would like to use something that is and will be supported for a while. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Hi mobiDan,

At this point in time, I would not go as far as saying that Casablanca is recommended for building web services on Windows, since we still consider the server-side features experimental.

No, the C++ REST SDK has not replaced WWSAPI, which as far as I know is still supported (I will pass your question on to the people who own it, for confirmation of that, though). Note, however, that WWSAPI was meant for building SOAP-based services, while the C++ REST SDK is for REST-based services.
