A Web service is defined by the W3C as a software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network.

Developers commonly employ Web services for remote procedure calls, for representational state transfer or to implement a service-oriented architecture (SOA). A common criticism of Web services is that there are too many Web services standards.
