A web services stack written in C/C++ can provide much better performance in comparison to stacks implemented in other languages due to native code. Therefore when high performance is required in web services interactions, often a C/C++ web services stack offers a much better solution. In order to quantify the performance advantage offered by WSF/C++ (WSO2 Web Service Framework for C++). we carried out a simple performance test. The article explains the procedure followed for the performance comparison and the results.
