XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented.
When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side.
The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability.
XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
