Workspace Streaming SDK

Symantec Workspace Streaming SDK is made up of several web services that are accessed using simple object access protocol (SOAP). The interface is exposed through a web services description language (WSDL) document. The WSDL document provides details on the published methods and objects. Most programming languages provide support for SOAP web services, including C#, Visual Basic, C++, Java, Python, and others. Most languages provide the ability to automatically generate proxy classes using the WSDL document.
