West Wind Technologies has released an update to the Web Service Proxy Generator, which automates the process for creating FoxPro clients to complex SOAP 1.x Web Services. The tool makes calling Web Services as easy as calling methods on a generated FoxPro proxy class. This update is a maintenance release that adds a host of updates for wwDotnetBridge to facilitate interaction with many more new .NET types including, structs, long, char, byte, Single, DbNull and more. This release also updates the documentation with new examples and a new, easier to parse display theme. The Proxy Generator is available as shareware and registered users can simply re-download the registered version for a free update.

West Wind Technologies has released West Wind WebSurge v1.0. WebSurge is an easy to use Web request and load testing tool, that makes it easy to capture HTTP sessions and play them back either individually or under load. Capture HTML, AJAX, REST or SOAP Service requests from browsers or Windows applications using our built-in capture tool, or manually create HTTP Headers for request sessions. Easily test individual requests for API testing or fire off full sessions of requests under heavy load. WebSurge runs locally on Windows machines and works inside of your Firewall or VPN for internal and external Web load testing. WebSurge is free for personal and open source use, and licensed for commercial use.

We're disappointed to share that Cathy Pountney won't be speaking at Southwest Fox this year after all. (She's fine, but needed to step out.) But we're delighted that Tuvia Vinitsky has agreed to help fill the schedule. He'll be covering two topics that should be of interest to both Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ attendees: (1) dbSchema: SQL Server Database Design and Maintenance Made Easy (http://swfox.net/SessionsSWFOX.aspx?) (2) PCI Compliance: Facts and Fears (http://swfox.net/SessionsSWFOX.aspx?). Tuvia's bio: http://swfox.net/Speakers.aspx#TuviaVinitsky. Also, just a quick reminder that the next discount deadline is rapidly approaching. Register before September 1 for a $50 early-bird discount.
