Defining Web Services
This book is about consuming, creating, and deploying Web Services. To “consume” means to use a client that communicates with aWeb Service. What are Web Services, and how do their clients communicate with them? Most generally, aWeb Service is a distributed application that exposes public procedures whose input and output conform to a standard, language-independent and platform-independent protocol. The key feature of Web Services is interoperability: they can be invoked remotely over the network by client programs written in different languages and running on different platforms.
