Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Tcl Web Services Toolkit: TWiST
No, it is not related. I knew of this use of the acronym as I was choosing a name. Note that there is a small 'i' in the tWSDL wrapper TWiST.
The TWIST standards are a very nice example of a (somewhat) open source data model for business processes represented as XML documents (messages). I'm not sure if there is an associated WSDL or not, but the messages could be reused in any client server application.
TWiST could be used to represent the types in TWIST, and to read and validate messages. But currently it can't directly create new messages using the high level API.
