Aren't web services using RPC now???

Why RPC is remvoed from API name (Java API for XML Based Service (JAX-WS))???

Thanks.

RPC is but one application of web services. While initially WS focused mostly on RPC, they have shifted towards more document-centric approaches since then. So it makes sense that the APIs are becoming more generalized, and their names reflect that. (JAX-WS was initially named JAX-RPC 2.0, by the way.) But it is still perfectly possible to build RPC-style WS.

By the way, a single question mark is sufficient when ending a question.
