Webservices: Why do we need them?

Before webservices were born, Application integration (with other applications) was always a big pain point. Webservices have facilitated the integration part of the application in big ways. Webservices have helped in Integrating applications at a very lower price band as compared to other available integration/middleware technologies.

It’s a new kind of middleware based on XML and the Web. XML and the Web help solve the challenges associated with traditional application-to-application integration like heterogeneity. They are platform and language independent.

Webservices aid applications and organizations in the following ways:

  • Low Cost of communication.

  • Support for Low Cost of Integration using XML and Web.

  • Webservices are self describing using WSDL ( I will write about WSDL soon).

  • Automatic Discovery using UDDI.
