Hi Ranchers,

I had a doubt ever since,I came across this word Web Service.

Frankly speaking I am pretty much naive to this ....I had seen people converting a UML diagram or a particular metamodel in
WSDL or BPEL or something like that..

My doubt is what can we achieve by these XML documents..

What is the importance of Web Service


Thanks....

A WSDL file contains a detailed description of a web service. Client objects can use this description to make calls on the web service. And, during deployment, stub objects can be created using the description.

A BPEL file contains a detailed description of a business process and is used heavily by BPM Engine software.

A web service enables distributed computing by allowing two applications to remotely communicate with each other.
