|Core standards / Web services|
Web services technology is increasingly important for automated business interaction and application integration between enterprises. Web services allow software coponents to interoperate using the Internet as a transport mechanism.
Web Services Description Language (WSDL) is an XML format for describing network services as message carriers of document or procedural information. It provides a standard way of describing Internet-based services as communication endpoints capable of exchanging messages. WSDL is thus a means of automating communication between applications over the Internet.
