BFO Adds Full Web Services Support to Big Faceless Graph Library

12/22/2005 - BFO (Big Faceless Organization), provider of high quality Java software components, has just made developers lives a little easier by adding full web services support to its new Big Faceless Graph Library.

Web services are a generic term for loosely coupled service providers running over HTTP. They allow short-term cooperation between processes running on widely distributed systems, sometimes even in different organizations. The Graph Library 2.1 utilizes this technology by generating graphs from Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) requests. It is expected this new addition will benefit large organizations running mixed .NET and EJB environments through the creation of high quality, consistent looking graphs and charts, as well as small organizations running .NET, for whom a Java component was a poor fit until now.

Further enhancements to version 2.1 of the Graph Library include interactive SVG graphs. Fully interactive or animated vector-based graphs can be created using the same simple JavaScript based approach that was used with interactive graphs created as images.
