Using Web Services
The past couple of chapters examined how to design and code web services. By now you realize that web services are really standard business objects that provide a powerful built-in communication framework that allows you to interact with them over the Internet. However, you still don’t know how this interaction takes place. In this chapter, you’ll examine how to create a simple ASP.NET client for your StockQuote web service. Then, for a little more fun, you’ll see how to access a real, mature web service on the Internet: Microsoft’s TerraService, which exposes a vast library of millions of satellite pictures from a database that is 1.5 TB in size.
