Work on Swirl has resumed

Posted by Kirby Turner on June 6, 2006

Work on Swirl has started up again. For those readers who have forgotten, Swirl is the code name for White Peak Software’s soon to be released Web service debugger and testing program. I missed the planned milestone of having the first beta release out by the end of May due to other customer demands. Can’t blame a guy for needing to make money from time to time, right?

As I’m working through preparing Swirl for the first beta release, something occurred to me. I really don’t like the WSDL parser I wrote. It works mostly. I say mostly because there is still a bug or two left in the parser. But the reason I don’t like it is not because there are a few bugs but because the code is nasty and hard to maintain. I think it is time to take a step back and refactor the WSDL parser into something better. This of course will delay the beta release even more but it’s worth the delay in the long run.
