Web Services

Web services represent a new architecture for creating applications that can be accessed from a different system. Web Services are self-describing, modular applications that can be published, located, and invoked dynamically over the web. Enables interoperability across:

  • Distributed computing platforms
  • Operating systems
  • Programming languages
  • Geographic boundaries

Web Services Framework:

  • Enables interoperable services over the standard interfaces
  • Supports publishing, discovery, and binding services
  • Separates data instances from service instances
  • Enables one provider’s services to be used by another provider’s data

Web Services Core Standards:
