Does anyone have some real-world examples of web services that have been extremely successful? What is it about these services that made them successful?
On the flip side, what are some web services that haven't done so well? What contributed to their poor outcome?
Cheers

The success of a Web services deployment depends when it meets it "Systemic Qualities" of the business. Particularly, Interoperability, Latency, Extensibility, Reliability, Scalability, Availability and so on.
Real world Web services, you may create a Service Requestor for Amazon.com. Amazon has a link where you download their WSDL for invoking their services.
