About SOA, XML and Web Services Development Tools

Web services are the services that a business's Web server provides to Web users or Web-connected programs. Web services range from such major services as customer relationship management down to much more limited services such as the furnishing of a stock quote. Web services are enabled by the use of XML as a means of standardizing data formats and exchanging data. XML is the foundation for the Web Services Description Language (WSDL). Read these Web services development resources for more information on the basics of creating and maintaining Web services, including SOA development and XML development.
