Web Services overview - creator: H. Voormann Introduction

"Web services provide a standard means of interoperating between different software applications, running on a variety of platforms and/or frameworks." [W3C, 2007]

Web Services is a big subject, however, this tutorial will look at it from the point of view of Web Applications using SOAP messages encoded using XML for interoperating with Web Services accessible using a WSDL definition.

This may all seem quite complex or full of Jargon and Acronyms but the tutorial aims to lead you gently through the processes of building a remote web service into your web application.

This tutorial is based on the use of ASP.NET to build web applications which incorporate results of web service calls.

Although it does not strictly fall into the category I have included an example of using Google Maps within your web pages. The advantage of the Google Maps interface is that it can be built into a static web page. Try the Google Maps example.
