Hi All!! I dont know whether this is the right place to post my doubt!.

Service Oriented Architecture consists of one or more web services which are all wrapped by the Business processes. This is what i understood of SOA. Would you please correct me if i am wrong since i am new to SOA. If this is not correct, what exactly the difference between SOA and WebServices?

SOA is an architechture where in we would develop agile systems which accesses different services. Where as webservices is one of the important ways of implementing those services.
