1) What is a Web Service?
Web service is a client server application or component. It is used for communication.
It is way to communicate between two devices over network.
In another word we cans say that it is collection protocols for exchanging information between two devices or application.

Web Service components are:
- SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol)
- UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration)
- WSDL (Web Services Description Language)
3) What are the advantages of Web service?
Web Service advantages are:
- Interoperability: It is used to communicate with other application. It can be developed in any other Programming language.
- Reusability: One Web services can be used by many client applications at the same time.
- Modularity: we can create a service for a specific task such as tax calculation etc.
- Loose Coupling: Web Services client code is independent with server code.
4) What are the features of Web Service?
Web Service features are:
It is available over the Internet or private (intranet) networks.

- It allows us to get around firewalls.
11) What is UDDI?
UDDI stands for Universal Description Discovery Integration. It is XML based framework for describing and integrating the web services.
12) What are the advantages of RESTful Web Service?
The advantages of RESTful web service are:
It is language independent
It is platform independent
It is fast and lightweight protocol.
It can use SOAP.
It allows different data format.
It is methods that can be tested easily over browser.

There are various types of web services protocols:
- HTTP(Hypertext Transport Protocol)
- SMTP(Simple Mail Transport Protocol)
- FTP(File Transfer Protocol)
- BEEP(Block Extensible Exchange Protocol)
- SOAP(Simple Object Access Protocol) etc.
17) What is BEEP in Web Services?
In Web services, BEEP stands for Blocks Exchange Protocol. It is used to build new protocols for the variety of applications.
18) What are the different HTTP methods supported by Web services?
There are HTTP methods supported by Web services.
- GET: Read-only access to the resource.
- PUT: Creation of new resource.
- DELETE: Removal of a resource.
- POST: Update of an existing resource.
- OPTIONS: Get supported operations on the resource.
- HEAD: Returns HTTP header only, nobody.
19) What is the use of WSDL in a web service?
In web service, WSDL is used to describe the availability of service.
20) What are the core components of HTTP request in web services?
In web services, the core components of HTTP request are given below:
||Indicate HTTP methods like GET, PUT, POST, etc
||Identifies the resource on server
||Contains metadata like client type, cache settings, message body format, etc for HTTP request message.
||Represents content of the message.
21) Write the syntax rules applicable for SOAP message?
The syntax rules applicable for SOAP message are given below:
- Must be encoded using XML.
- Must use the SOAP envelope namespace.
- Must use the SOAP encoding namespace.
- Must not contain the DTD reference.
- Must not contain XML processing instructions.
22) What are the primary security issues of web services?
The primary security issues of web services are:
- Network Security
23) What is DISCO?
DISCO means discovery. It is the groups of interrelated web services. It provides consolidated directory for web services issues.
25) What is Stax?
Stax stands for Streaming API for XML. It is an API that is used to read and write XML document.

28) What is XML-RPC?
XML-RPC is a simple protocol that uses XML message to perform RPCs.
29) What is WSDL?
WSDL is an XML-based language for describing web services and how to access them.
30) How can we handle Network security threats in Web services?
We can handle Network security threats by using two ways:
- Filter out all HTTP POST requests that set their content type to text/xml.
- Filter the SOAP action HTTP header attribute.
