This white paper describes how you can use the ImageDraw's Dynamic Image Composition concept when working with real world XML Web Services such us Amazon Web Services which provides developers with direct access to Amazon's robust technology platform.
In order to demonstrate how you can use ImageDraw's Dynamic Image Composition concept in Web Services scenarios, a fictitious ASP.NET Music Search page was developed. The idea behind that demo application is to leverage search power and content data to Amazon Web Services while leveraging visual appearance of search results to ImageDraw controls. The following figure shows how the demo application works.
This sample demo was developed using Neodynamic ImageDraw controls, ASP.NET 2.0, and Visual Studio 2005. If you're using Visual Web Developer Express Edition you can open and run the download files as well.
