Abstract

This article proposes a way in which an application that is not web service enabled, or able to directly invoke web services, can participate in a web services architecture and environment through use of an adaptive entity which acts as an agent on the application's behalf, both as a mapping layer from the application to the invocation of the service, and as a web services facade to the application for use by web services clients.
