In an as wide as the University community, the need for information to flow and is accessible by all its members is as important as that cardholder keep their validity and integrity. The latter is achieved keeping Virtual Campus and other corporate applications like UXXI, HOMINIS, etc as the sole source of institutional data.
Until now, the solution was to provide links to web pages of the computing service without the possibility of modifying its appearance to the rest of the community. This was in the best of cases. At worst we could receive contradictory information web servers of the UA causing confusion to the recipient of the information.
The proposal to use the technology of Web Services, intends to continue maintaining centralized corporate data, but providing much greater flexibility in the use of such data by those who need them.
A Web Service is a communication system between different servers across the network, based on messages that meet a (SOAP) standard based on XML (http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/).
Web Sevices will allow responsible for departmental websites and/or centres, and even teachers with personal pages, access to corporate data to display them in your web pages with your own style and most importantly, without having to duplicate information. Web Services have already been included in version 3.6 of the content management system Vualà.
