XML Web Services in Managed Code 

XML Web services provides the ability to exchange messages in a loosely coupled environment using standard protocols such as HTTP, XML, XSD, SOAP, and WSDL. The messages can be structured and typed or loosely defined. Because standard protocols serve as the basis for XML Web services, your XML Web service applications can communicate with a broad variety of implementations, platforms, and devices. The topics in this section focus on how to create and deploy XML Web services and how to access XML Web services in managed code.
