Web Services Solutions

A web service is a way of using the Internet to provide or accept information that makes sense to computers; this allows other sites or applications to consume information from, or provide information to, your service. This enables communication between applications, without having to establish any communication channels other than the ones that web browsers already use. It isn't the best fit for every application, but when it is useful, it is very useful.

An API can be a synonym for a web service, but it can also be a generally accessible way of providing data. For example, Twitter has a public API, which other applications can use to display tweets on their site.
