RMOUG, Kaleidoscope 2009, Slight Change to flex_ws_api

I know that I am horribly overdue for a post. I was out at the RMOUG Training Days last week and presented on Integrating Web Services and Application Express. The presentation should be linked from the referenced page soon. Unfortunately I only had 60 minutes to present 90 minutes worth of material. I presented on integrating Web services created from JDeveloper, XDB Native Web Services, BPEL Web services and finally integration with Oracle Content Server (formerly Stellent). The presentation was supposed to end with a discussion of debugging techniques using a variety of tools such as SOAPUI, ProxyTrace and XMLSpy.

Luckily, I will be presenting at the ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2009 in Monterey California in June. I have 90 minutes so I will be able to get to the debugging topics. Please join me if you can swing it.

Lastly, I have made a couple of minor tweeks to flex_ws_api. The changes allow for a more graceful response from parse_xml and parse_xml_clob if the node is not found using the supplied Xpath expression. It now simply returns null.
