This paper takes a study on the Web Services - a technology that has come to change the future of Computing and e-commerce. Web Services is a distributed computing technology that offers interaction and collaboration among vendors and customers, with the vision of providing ubiquitous computing. When one plug an appliance into the electricity socket, one don't worry about how the electricity generation and distribution takes place. All that expected is uninterrupted power and the utility bill that one get at the end of the month! Similarly, Web Services will make computing resources, both hardware and software, accessible through the Internet just like electricity is made available. Web Services will do for computing what the Internet did for data.
