Article from Issue 70/2006

Dear Linux Magazine Reader,

A recent revolution that everyone has been talking about for the last few years is the web services revolution. In the “web services paradigm,” as it is called, the tools of the web form a framework for building custom applications tailored for the needs of a corporate customer. If you are computer-savvy enough to be reading this magazine, you probably learned about web services technologies a long time ago, and you don’t need a refresher course on how web services are taking over the world. Or do you?
