It not clear what your question is.

A web services consumer and provider typically reside on different physical machines (possibly running under different host platforms) which are connected by a communications network. The consumer sends and/or retrieves data using the HTTP protocol by sending requests to the provider which then returns results (if any) in the response. The data transferred could pertain to "work" that the provider performs on behalf of the consumer or it could pertain to one or more "entities" that are stored/managed by the provider. This constitutes distributed computing as both the consumer and provider reside on physically separate machines.

I suspect that didn't answer your inquiry in the slightest...
