pls be more specific, a web service is just a "function" available on the "web", so in this way is a server object, so you can only interact with the web service and it only returns strings in a XML format.

Hi,

Let us understand how web service works. You have deployed web service on Server. This web service do simple task of converting your string values in upper case or lower case based on your parameters as you need..

Your web application call the web service's method to convert your string value into lower case. So when you call that method that is executed on server side in Web service. Then output is send back to your application.

In essence the client call web service and web service executes those commands.

Hope it helps you to understand.

Regards,
VSS

I'm seeing web services as client driven. But I'm trying to create something that is server driven to push to clients then wait for a response. Windowservices seems better

windows services and web services are 2 different things, windows services are only to run in localhost, while webservices are designed to be runing on server, but to be visible to the "web" or a pc that has visibility to server, in other words webservices are a "function" in the server. you can send and receive data.
