Hi,
Now-a-days I noticed that most of the Java related openings ask for WebServices. Why is WebServices so popular and hot these days?
Thanks.

Webservice, to my understanding, is mostly used/targeted in integrating application. Few advantages it has over other similar techology are protocol independent (thought not now,may become in comming years), the data sent too and fro is in a language independent format, the experties needed is comparitively fairly less.
Companies are ready to spend money on consolidating their existing system than building a new one which will be expensive.
