hi

Is webservices a perfect success in the present market?

IF it is really successful how long it is going to stay?

only big companies like google ,yahoo, microsoft are using this technology
small companies are not really using it why?


IS there any other technology against webservices ? that can overcome this present trend?

and my last question is how Safe is webservice for newly entered software engineer? can he completely rely on this technoloy for ever?

please can you explain these?


thanks in advance


regards

That depends on your definition of "perfect success". I still use software that does not use WS at all, so in that sense it hasn't taken over the SW world.

IF it is really successful how long it is going to stay?

As Yogi Berra said: "I find it very hard to make predictions, especially about the future." IT is still a rapidly evolving field; if we didn't foresee WS ten years ago, who can predict when the next big wave washes it away?

only big companies like google ,yahoo, microsoft are using this technology .small companies are not really using it

Not sure where you got this notion, but it is completely incorrect.

IS there any other technology against webservices? that can overcome this present trend?

If there aren't any yet, there will be in the future. We will know what they are once they reach critical mass. That could be in 2 years or in 10 years.

how Safe is webservice for newly entered software engineer? can he completely rely on this technoloy for ever?

Forever? Of course not. Everyone in IT will have to learn new technologies constantly, while older ones fall by the wayside. Right now WS are hot, and likely to remain so for some time.

Web services as a technology has achieved wide-spread adoption. Personally, I have been involved in 2 projects in the last 12 months that integrated WS into an existing application. These projects used different flavors of WS - RPC and JAX-WS - and both were successful.
WS is not going to be around for ever - new technologies are being developed continuously.
For the moment it's here, who knows about tomorrow?
