Introducing Web Services


The term Web services refers to a set of technologies that are the future of distributed computing. The reasons why they are so apt for distributed computing include the following:

  • Web services are designed for interoperability across heterogeneous environments.

  • Web services give us a loosely coupled messaging architecture that scales across the Internet.

  • The builders of the Web service architecture have the benefit of hindsight and the many successes and failures of earlier attempts to build distributed architectures.
