Internet connectivity is increasing by every day. Initially, connectivity was possible only with the computers which were using same hardware and software technologies, which was insufficient to fulfill the ever-growing needs. So there was a necessity of a kind of a system that can allow inter-platform communications or a communication which is independent of the Operating Systems and Programming Languages. Web services were introduced to address this issue.
Web Services are self-described, component applications that can be published, located, and invoked across the Web. They are reusable web-based applications that can be accessed through different hardware platforms and operating systems. XML and HTTP is the basic platform for web services. It is a standardized way of integrating web applications using web service standards and protocols for accessing and developing web services such as XML, SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI. XML is used to format the data retrieved by the protocol, SOAP is used to transfer the data, WSDL describes the availability of web service and UDDI provides the list of available services.

In the business world, web services provide a mechanism of communication between two remote systems, connected through the network. The business applications as Web Services, the information systems of different companies can be linked. These business systems then can be accessed by using simple SOAP messages over the normal HTTP Web protocol.
