It describes the essentials of supporting technologies and shows how they can be built into a Web services infrastructure that is high-performance, robust, and cost-effective. Realistic in approach, this book offers a readable definition of Web services and non-technical explanations of key technologies and standards. The author explores the scenarios and applications that would benefit most from Web services and offers guidelines for making an informed decision about which Web services products are right for your company's needs. You will find detailed coverage of the following topics:

*Powerful features of Web services, including dynamic discovery and dynamic binding

*Using Web services for heterogeneous integration, managing legacy assets, and B2B electronic procurement *Web services core products and platforms

*Evaluating Web services offerings based on such requirements as scalability, extensibility, and security With this book in hand, you will have a clear understanding of Web services, what the technology can do for your organization, and the direction in which you should be heading.
