What are the benefits of Web Services?
Following are the benefits of using web services −
Exposing the Existing Function on the network − Web services allows you to expose the functionality of your existing code over the network. Once it is exposed on the network, other application can use the functionality of your program.
Interoperability − Web services allow various applications to talk to each other and share data and services among themselves.
Standardized Protocol − Web services use standardized industry standard protocol for the communication. All the four layers (Service Transport, XML Messaging, Service Description, and Service Discovery layers) use well-defined protocols in the web services protocol stack.
Low Cost of Communication − Web services use SOAP over HTTP protocol, so you can use your existing low-cost internet for implementing web services.
