Hi.
AFAIR (R == remember), 2004 was a really hot year for Web Services, but it seems to me that no one talk about WS these days (as if WS is dead).

You're mistaken. To the contrary, WS have evolved into a full-blown architecture (SOA) which is being discussed and implemented just about everywhere.

The major technology web sites (java.sun.com, dev2dev, onjava ....) are not discussing WS extensivly these days.
All are talking about Ajax and Rails.

Those are developer web sites. Developers know by now how to create WS. AJAX, on the other hand, isn't widely used yet, so it makes sense for these sites to discuss it.

If you go to web sites geared towards CIOs and IT Mgmt., they are discussing large-scale WS projects, while AJAX is mentioned mostly as an up-and-coming technology. What's more, AJAX is about client to server communication; it won't have the same impact on enterprise architecture that SOA has.

AJAX and WS are completely different technologies and I am sure that WS is not less in popularity than AJAX.

In Indian I.T job market a lot of UI stuffs are done , no wonder why most of the recruiters are after developers with some AJAX experience.
