I am new to WebSerice. There are different terminologies are used in the WebServices implementation. Invoke a WebService / Consume a WebService / Publish a WebService.
Whether Publish / Invoke a WebSevice is similar ?

No - publishing is what happens on the server side. Invoking is the same as consuming the WS - it's what the client does.

I've seen consuming used when talking about the development process, for example, to generate the classes needed you consume the web service definition. Where as invoking is just like invoking a method, it's when you actually call the service. Publishing, like said above, is what the server side does to make it available for use.
