This article presents information related to developing skills in designers and developers as and when they need new web services skills. Kevin Malone, software technology strategist at IBM, says: "Simplistically, an example of web services can be seen as two pieces of code being able to interact with each other, irrespective of language, platform or location." It is this concept of interoperability that is the key to understanding why there is such a high level of interest in web services at the moment. IBM's Malone explains that IBM's WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Studio tools are the basis of the firm's approach to supporting the development of web services applications.
