IPaq database developed to teach about web services
Em Tonkin

In order to teach about web services, I figured it was best to look for something a bit different, particularly something that gives one an idea of the use of these technologies in a heterogenous environment. So I chose to take four IPAQs, install a mini-IIS server on them as well as an ASP layer, and ask the students to develop a working web application on the IPAQs that allows the user to input data, and provides them to the 'Kneipenführer' - Pub Guide - web service via HTTP Post. Then the students were asked to visit a few pubs and populate the database!
