XML Web Services
An XML Web service provides a particular functionality and is publicly accessible
by means of markup standards, such as XML and HTTP. An XML Web service can be used
internally by a single application or exposed externally over the Internet for use
by any number of applications. Instead of pursuing the generic capabilities of code
portability, XML Web services provide a viable solution for enabling data and system
interoperability. XML Web services use XML-based messaging as a fundamental means
of data communication to help bridge the differences that exist between systems
that use different component models, operating systems, and programming languages.
Using XML-based messaging as the mechanism by which the service is created and accessed,
both the XML Web service client and the XML Web service provider are freed from
needing any knowledge of each other beyond inputs, outputs, and location. SOAP provides
an extensible framing mechanism for XML messages. WSDL makes it possible to describe
an endpoint and its behaviour. WSDL layers provide additional information over the
XML Schema definitions that describe the actual messages. This extra information
makes it possible for toolkits to automatically generate proxy and stub classes
that know how to invoke Web Service operations without developer intervention.
