Task Engine 10.11 | Task Engine Webhelp | webMethods Task Engine API and Service Reference | Using the Task Engine Web Service API | Overview
The Web service API enables you to add, delete, locate, and update tasks on a webMethods Task Engine from a client program.
The Task Engine hosts two versions of the task Web service, one version for .NET clients and the other for regular Web-service clients. Both versions of the Web service provide the same set of operations, however, the schemas for the underlying data structures differ slightly between the two. The .NET version of the service uses structures that are compatible with .NET clients.
If you want to manipulate tasks from the Integration Server environment, use the built-in Java services described in Using the Task Engine Built-in Services. Do not use the Web service operations described in this chapter with Web services created within Integration Server.
