Bo Xie (IBM)wrote an interesting article about how to use gSOAP a Web Services stack optimized for C/C++. I enjoyed reading the article even though when I disagree in some topics. I don’t think that C/C++ is always the best option when comes to build Web Services with a small memory footprint. Proper memory optimization is almost always a design + algorithms decision. And nowadays Standards like MTOM and XOP can help to alleviate those challenges. Also there are another C++ Web Services platforms that perform really well Visual C++ .NET and Systinet WASP Server for C++ are just 2 alternatives to gSOAP when comes to build C++ Web Services.
