This series describes the process of building, deploying, and using high-throughput web services for bioinformatics applications. This is meant to serve as a guide for development of software based on the Open-Bioinformatics Foundations software toolkits with packages such as BioPerl, BioJava, and BioPython. This article provides directions for how to deploy a service and present a new implementation of document-style web services extensions to the BioPerl module that will allow a wide range of existing applications to consume such services.
