I am new.

What is Web Services? How does it differ from XML (Maybe this is a funny question)?

Web Services is some functionality over a network that can be accessed in a secured and efficient manner thru different ways, most commonly known protocol being SOAP.

XML is language and platform independent. Web Services use XML for taking a step further to distributed computing. You should search Google to learn more...happy reading!
