Web Services

A Web service is an archive of remote operations that can be called by sending messages over the Internet. A Web service provider publishes a Web service for query and use, and a Web service consumer calls operations from the service. A Web service provider makes available a WSDL (Web Services Description Language) document that defines the service interface. The WSDL document is in XML format. What happens behind the interface is up to the provider, but most providers map the interface to procedure calls in a supported programming language. Incoming requests from a consumer are passed through to the underlying code, and results are passed back to the consumer.
