Hi Ranchers:

I am working on Homes Factory project for Part II and III and a bit confused by “Web Services” in the requirement-“This system is accessible using a well-defined set of web services”.

Does Web Services here mean JAX-WS that uses XML, SOAP, WSDL, etc or in a much boarder scope that includes any JEE technology such as: Servlet, JSP, RMI, JMS, etc?

Can you guys shed some light on it?

Thanks very much!

As a consumer, one should not care how has service provider implemented it. A consumer can safely assume that it satisfies the definition of WebService, and yes that means XML, WSDL, SOAP etc.

praveen Ji:

Thanks for the reply. That's also the conclusion I can make after read other posts and help from another rancher. Basically, it's a black box server a client can get service from. In the assignment, the service a client get are the inventory management and product validation.

Thanks again.
