About Web Services:
Web services are the fundamental building blocks in the move to distributed computing on the internet. Web services are becoming the platform for application integration. Applications are constructed using web services from various sources that work together regardless of where they reside or how they were implemented. Web Services expose useful functionality to Web users through a standard Web protocol. In most cases, the protocol used is SOAP. Web services provide a way to describe their interfaces in enough detail to allow a user to build a client application to talk to them. This description is usually provided in an XML document called a Web Web services are registered so that potential users can find them easily. This is done with Universal Discovery Description and Integration (UDDI). One of the primary advantages of the XML Web services architecture is that it allows programs written in different languages on different platforms to communicate with each other in a standards-based way. We've defined an XML Web service as a software service exposed on the Web through SOAP, described with a WSDL file and registered in UDDI. Today Web services are increasingly becoming an integral part of organizational information technology (IT) infrastructures. So this FDP has been arranged to make faculty understand the concepts of web services and securing Web services.
