Web Services Technology

What is a Web Service?

Web service is the next big thing for the connected world. Web services are the software services that can be deployed in the Web infrastructure, published and identified by universal standards and accessed through standard Web protocols. Web services can be from the smallest services to industrial-strength services.

Web services are bound to replace the monolithic and client-server applications to be accessible to users and applications over the Web. Web services, being an evolutionary technology, strictly follow the standard and well-tested services-oriented architecture. Web services technology facilitates reusability and integration of enterprise applications. By using industry standards and protocols, Web services technology much needed interoperability among the heterogeneous systems, applications and packages.

Consumers and other applications can access data, applications, and even enterprise-scale services from their office and home PCs, hotels, and airport business centers. Users at home could purchase everything from books to airline tickets, conduct business with their banks and investment institutions, and maintain Web-based calendars on the portal of their choice. As wireless Web is fast being adopted, the days are not far away for these Web services to be accessed using wireless/mobile information and communication appliances.
