Ph.D Research Proposal for Web Services

The applications of web services have become wide in the recent years. Web services use XML to code and to decode data, and SOAP to transport it. The term describes a standardized way of integrating Web-based applications using the XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI open standards over an Internet protocol backbone. XML is used to tag the data, SOAP is used to transfer the data, WSDL is used for describing the services available and UDDI is used for listing what services are available. Used primarily as a means for businesses to communicate with each other and with clients, Web services allow organizations to communicate data without intimate knowledge of each other’s IT systems behind the firewall. Web services are application components using open protocols and are self-contained and self-describing.

Web services can be used by other applications. By using Web services, the application can publish its function or message to the rest of the world. The project operations of S-LOGIX took web services as one of the domain to keep an effective attention on real time projects too.
