Compiled Contract Published

Web Cohesion is pleased to publish the first draft of Compiled Contract. Compiled contract is a development model for Web service programming. It is a resolution between the two opposing philosophies of web service development, contract-first and code-first, claiming the major benefits of both. The web service API is built and maintained in source code, but developers are warned at compile time about the possible ambiguities and interoperability issues in the generated contract. The compiled contract model is formalized in this document.
