In my web services tutorial I will cover generating JSON and XML. We’ll then walk through examples in which we use REST, SOAP and RPC (Remote Procedure Calls). To finish off everything, I’ll then create a translation web service that can translate into 10 different languages.

Web Services Tutorial 3 : In this part of my web services tutorial, I provide both a non-WSDL SOAP server and a REST Web Service Example program. The goal is to keep everything simple and easy to understand because many people are confused by both. I decided to focus on just the GET method with REST because it is most commonly used.
Web Services Tutorial 4 : I start building a common request being a Translation Web Service. This will allow you to translate into up to 44 different languages. I also cover how to use UTF-8 encoding with MySQL and PHP. In this video I set up the database and create all of the functions we will eventually use with our web service.
Web Services Tutorial 5 : In this tutorial I’ll finish the web service. I also fix a few errors that come up. By the end of the video we’ll be able to pass words through a URL and receive the translation in many different languages.
Web Services Tutorial 6 : In this tutorial I complete my Translation Web Service Example. This is a transliteration web service in which it directly translates from one word to another.
