Kodak's digital photo business relies on EasyShare, a software package it developed in-house.Kodak uses open source applications for key operations at Ofoto, its online digital photo service, but its beachhead in digital photo-taking is built around its own easyshare software.
Through the International Imaging Industry Association (I3A), Kodak also supports the Common Picture Exchange Environment (CPXe) Initiative, which uses more basic Web-based standards including:
- Extensible Markup Language (XML), used for encoding data in standard "tags."
- Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), to pass commands, queries and responses between computer applications.
- Web Services Description Language (WSDL), to describe offered services in a format that different applications can understand.
- Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI), a protocol for the creation of directories of Web services.
