Introduction

Web services are web-based applications that use open, XML-based standards and transport protocols to exchange data with clients. Web services are being developed in all languages and made available on the web. You do not need to know what kind of programming language is being used, or the internal data structure. You can request data from a web service using simple HTTP-GET requests or more complex SOAP calls. Data is returned in XML or any other open standard. Use web services to enhance your website or application without having to fully understand the internals of the code. We have created a directory of free available web services on the web. If you have any suggestions for our list, please use our add my service suggestion form.

We create a small tutorial on how to consume a web service and a a second one here. If you are new to web services, check out this tutorial.
