Hi Rewa,
I noticed your display name doesn't comply with our naming policy. Would you mind editing it into something compliant?
Thanks.

Hi Lasse Koskela
I will definatly change it if you want me to, but it is a very common name here in India.
Infact it's the name of my daughter.

It's just that our naming policy requires a surname (family name) and a first name (given name)... So "Rewa" is fine as long as you add a last name there as well. Thanks.
It's all about making the site look more professional and community-like than if we had "K0oL hAx0r" talking to "Java Dude" and "Jim" helping out "Joe"...

What are web services used for


In general, for exposing business logic or services to external applications.

can i have some good links and books for IT.


These are some good resources for learning about web services and news related to web services:
Web Services @ IBM developerWorks
Java Web Services Tutorial (it also discusses servlets, JAXP, etc. topics which aren't really web services technologies)
Web Services @ MSDN
WebServices.org
If you're interested in what kind of services people have developed, you might want to browse XMethods.net
As far as books are concerned, I would recommend J2EE Web Services. There are others as well (you might enjoy are more "high-level" introduction first), but this one is my absolute favorite right now.
