Special thanks to Edward H. Brzezowski, P.E.Facility Energy Services, Inc. Consulting Engineers for forwarding the following articles and resource linkage for Web Services.

From the article XML Web Services: Means to an End Ed extracted the following:

Box said XML Web services are a means to an end. "We have to get the plumbing sorted out," he said. "We have a couple more years of plumbing work, but after that we move on to applications," he said. Box said the "protocol work is starting to wind down, the infrastructure is catching up with protocols and it's time to start thinking about applications."
