    Hello.

    This must be a simple question. Why is a consumer called a consumer and not a client

    IMO this is because it could be confusing. From the point of view of the
    webservice, it is a "client" but a particular client of your service could
    be itself a server application or another webservice. "Consumer" is more
    general and helps to avoid this confusion...
