Web Services are gaining in popularity because of the benefits they provide. One of the major benefits is their support for interoperability in a heterogeneous environment, which leads to the capability to add systems and solutions that require different platforms. As long as the various systems are enabled for Web Services, the services can be used to facilitate interoperation. Web Services let enterprise application developers reuse and customize existing information assets. Web Services provide developers with standard ways to access middle-tier and back-end services, such as database management systems and transaction monitors, and to integrate them with other applications.
