Summary expansion
Drupal is a rich and dynamic open source content management system that can feed content into its framework from other Web applications including Facebook, Flickr, Google, Twitter, and more, using standard communication protocols called web services. You may be aware that content can be driven to your Drupal site from different web applications, but when you think of experimenting with this, you can get bogged down due to limited knowledge of web services. Imagine how you will feel when you catch sight of a book that covers powerful web services that help you to integrate your Drupal site with different web applications<br /><br />This book covers efficient Drupal web services that help you to speed up your connections to Web applications. It will compel you to learn more and more about web services and use them to easily share data and content resources between different applications and machines. This book also covers the usage of each web service for different purposes. It provides step-by-step instructions on integrating Web services and Web applications with your Drupal powered Web site.<br /><br />Drupal Web services will show you how to work with all kinds of Web Services and Drupal. The book shows you how to integrate content into your site; add multimedia and video to your site using video services including CDN2 and Kaltura. You will learn how to prevent spam using CAPTCHA, reCAPTCHA and Mollom. You will also learn to explore the different types of Web services Drupal offers and can integrate with using the Services module and XML-RPC. Next you will learn to push content from Google documents, deploying this text and image based content as Drupal nodes.<br /><br />Next you'll integrate Your site with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and show how to post content from Drupal to these social networking applications automatically. At the end you will be enlightened with authentication methods for integrating Web services with Drupal
