Using ADO.NET in XML Web Services
Web services provide a way to run a service on the Web and access its methods using standard protocols, including Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Extensible Markup Language (XML), Web Service Description Language (WSDL), and Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). Technically, a Web service is nothing more than an application that exposes its interface over the Web to a client who wants to access the service’s abilities. The uses of aWeb service include validating credit cards, searching for data in a database, inserting an order into a shopping cart, and updating a guest list. The sky is the limit on what you can have your Web service do on your server.
