>>>>>>>>>why we use webservice ?

because without accessing other person DB we want to get the Data or insert the data .

example take 2 bank a, b  from a with out touching the DB u can access there particular data in DB,  you will call some web services to a bank to b bank the, then b bank have another web services running in the site that will hand sake (check the validate web services call) and b fetch the data and given to A .

live example Amazon web site that book details are in  web services call .

u can get  whether forcast in  some particular web site . throw web services !!

Web services  allow two systems (heterogeneous system) to talk to each other using http protocol that means u don't have to have local network (TCP/IP) to allow two systems to talk to each other,for example JEE can talk to .net using webservices via internet, generally there is
1-webservice client
2- web serevice server  
serevice server  expose its service using WSDL (XML file) that describes what is the input and what is the output , webservice client use WSDL to understand the exposed webservice after that webservice client and server start to talk to each other using soup masseges (xml format )
