Understanding Web Services

Communications is an important part of our daily life. Think of a society where everyone spoke a different language. While most people that live in a country have a single language to communicate with, the Internet is still struggling with standardizing many of its communication features. However, as communication protocols and message formats become more and more consistent, it becomes possible to be able to describe the exchanges between two or more computer systems in a structured way. WSDL (Web Services Descriptive Language) addresses this need by defining an underlying XML grammar (a standard communication system) for describing network services as collections of communication standards capable of exchanging messages.

A Flash WSDL compliant document defines Web services to be a collection of network endpoints. This translates into a better system of transferring data between two endpoints, or ports; components therefore are more reliably bound, and can move easier between systems.
