What are Web Services?- Web services exposes functionality over internet using protocol such as HTTP. Web services can be accessed by two disparate applications from different platforms as they use SOAP protocol to expose the business functionality. SOAP is a platform independent protocol, so the consumer of the web services doesn’t have to know any implementation detail of web services based components. This is the reason why web services hosted on windows can even be accessed by LINUX consumer.
What are Web Services?- Web services can convert your applications into Web-applications.
- Web services are self-contained and self-describing application components that communicate using open protocols. They can be discovered using Universal Description, Discovery and Integration and be used by other applications.
- XML + HTTP form the basis of the Web services.
What are Web Services?- Webservices are designed to support systems interoperability. They interact through standard xml based messages using SOAP. They are sets of codes hosted on a hosting machine which are then accessed by other machines on a network to perform some task. Webservices are defined using WSDL (web services definition language), which exposes the "webmethod" through which they can be accessed. Since webservices are XML based, they are platform independent. Moreoever, even programming language independent. i.e. A java based client request can access a webservice created using .Net technology.
What are the Web Services?- Web Server is a program components that allows us to develop loosely coupled and platform independent application. It enables distributed applications to exchange messages using protocol like HTTP, XML, and SOAP. Since it uses XML based messaging, it enables heterogeneous applications to interoperate with each other.
