Service-Oriented Architecture

Web Services

Web services represent business logic (ie pre-coded functionality) and data in a reusable form. This logic and data exists within organizational assets such as legacy systems, databases and applications. Web services can be thought of as wrappers around this exposed functionality. By assembling together in-house services and external services from the web, business applications can be built by composition instead of coding.
