i've stumbled upon some terms/definitions on stuff related to web services.
Please someone, kindly explain to me in layman's terms please.
Thank You.

Q1. What it means by "feasibility on dynamic communication and mapping between web services"?

Q2. What it means by "that can be dynamically discovered, integrated and composed in distributed environment"?

Q3. "(JSR 172) Enable interoperability of J2ME clients with web services." What kind of interoperability it can enables?

Q4. "It supports the Arrays of primitive types and complex types based on the schema of the XML array." What does primitive and complex means??

Once again, thank you for taking effort to explain these to me. Thank you!

btw, i think you guys shld know tt i am really new to web services and i have one big problem.. I am supposed to do 'XML mapping', but is there a more specific term/name for this mapping thing?

I am supposed to retrieve information from external web services using XML and map it to the requestor web service. So, my XML does NOT contains any data such as <book> Harry Potter </book>.
Only stuff like <AllBooks>getExternalWebServiceA</AllBooks>

Primitive arrays will be made using types like int ,char,byte,short,long,float etc.,
http://www.cafeaulait.org/course/week2/02.html

Complex types arrays is made by you using objects
like
Class JR{
String greenhorn;
String ranchhand;
String bartender;
String sheriff;

//setter and getter methods
}
which then you will use like JR jr = new JR[10] , complex array of 10 JR objects..
