OR IS IT?

Dear Linux Magazine Reader,

Computer revolutions occur every 3–5 years. Something new happens that changes everything. Of course, we always have the marketing buzz telling us that revolu-tionary new things happen every 3–4 months, but I’m talking about really significant changes.

In the “web services paradigm,” as it is called, the tools of the web form a framework for building custom applications tailored for the needs of a corporate customer. If you are computer-savvy enough to be reading this magazine, you probably learned about web services technologies a long time ago, and you don’t need a refresher course on how web services are taking over the world. Or do you?
