The Technical Side of Web Services

What Are Web Services?

Web services are a collection of protocols and standards that are used to exchange data between applications or systems. In other words a unit of code that can be activated using HTTP requests. Exposing your code over a network allows other applications to use the functionality of your program. The goal of a web service is to allow applications of different languages to communicate with each other via a common language. Web services can be summarized as a service that is:

  • Available via internet or intranet networks
  • Uses XML messaging systems
  • Can function on multiple operating systems
  • Is self describing via common XML grammar
  • Can be discovered using a find mechanism

Service Oriented Architecture

SOA in relation to computer software, is a form of architectural pattern design where application components provide services to other components via a communications protocol like HTTP over a network. These services are designed to work in conjunction with a variety of vendors, products and technologies.

Web services are often the technology used in service-oriented architectures where a collection of services communicate via data transfer. In order for the SOA to work effectively there must be a clear definition of what a service is. We can define a service as well-defined and self contained function, or procedure that does not depend on the context or state of other services in order to run.

Here are some definitions to help you better understand how our web consulting services can help your business.

Web Architecture

The technologies and principal ideas that allow internet based programs to communicate with each other


Hypertext Transfer Protocol is the method of data transfer used to exchange messages on the web


Extensible Markup Language is the rules we follow to create human and machine readable documents


JavaScript Object Notation is a simplified alternative to XML used to transmit data between servers and web applications


Application Program Interface specifies how software components are designed and allowed to interact with each other while building software applications or programs
