All,

I rather like this definition proposed by Geoff:

      [Definition: A Web service is a software application identified by a
      URI, whose interfaces and bindings are defined in terms of XML based
      messages transported by internet protocols. This definition, which is
      described using XML artifacts, can be discovered by other software
      applications, which may then interact with the web service in
      a manner prescribed by its definition.]

Are there others who would agree to us adopting this definition for our
purposes?

Cheers,
