GILS

Just received this notice about the Government Information Locator Service:

Through the efforts of several people, we now have a draft Web Services Description Language (WSDL) file for the GILS search service, available for review.

This draft only defines GILS search using "HTTP Get", following the extended ZURL. The search response message follows the definition given. (BTW, these definitions align with the ZX client from Dave Vieglais.)

Future discussions of GILS as a Web Service will be conducted mostly on the GILS Version 3 Discussion List. Subscribe to the GILS V3 list.
