Using the Mozilla SOAP API

Saturday August 31st, 2002

Apple Developer Connection has an introduction to Mozilla's SOAP API. The tutorial explains how to use JavaScript to make SOAP calls to the Google Web API. It's particularly cool as Mozilla is currently the only Web browser that supports SOAP natively. If you're not exactly sure what SOAP is, take look at this introduction from About or something a little more technical.

Yep, signing scripts sucks and it make only VeriSign richer. SOAP, XMLHttpRequest (and others?) should really work with the originating server. Perhaps introducing a security checkbox to limit network acces to GET operations.

AFAIK there is a host based db in the prefs where you can allow a specific host to use (after a manual permission) eg XPConnect. Currently this is meant to be for developers without any UI.
