Difference between remoting and web services?

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Web Services' started by msnews.microsoft.com, Jan 20, 2005.

  1. I always understood that web services was the means to the end which is
    remoting. Is there a difference between remoting and XML web services, in
    the context of the .NET Framework? If someone told me that he was going to
    use the .NET Framework to do web services, but he wasn't going to be messing
    with remoting, is there such a thing as working with .NET web services
    without doing remoting?

    Or is there indeed a significant difference that I completely forgot about
    or overlooked?

  2. Hello msnews.microsoft.com,
    Web services is not platform specific whereas remoting is platform specific.
    If the client and server use remoting then they are bound to .net/windows
    and are tightly coupled. Whereas SOAP based web services are not coupled
    and a java client could access a .net service and vice-versa. To answer your
    question. There is such a thing as doing web services without remoting and
    thats what the world is trying to use to solve some of their service oriented
