Few months back, I wrote an article about how to retrieve weather information from www.weather.com using XOAP services. In that article I was subscribing the data from server side, caching data to SQL server database and then retrieving the information from SQL to display on the page. You can read that article from the link http://weblogs.asp.net/sreejukg/archive/2011/02/21/include-weather-information-to-your-site-using-weather-com-xmloap-service.aspx . After published the article, I received certain queries about retrieving the weather information without using any server side technology, so I decided to write this.
In this article, I am going to demonstrate how you can use the XMLOAP services (referred as XOAP from here onwards) provided by weather.com to display the weather information in your website. The XOAP services are available to be used for free of charge, provided you are comply with requirements from weather.com. I am writing this article from a technical point of view. If you are planning to use weather.com XOAP services in your application, please refer to the terms and conditions from weather.com website.
