Introduction #

In general, web services are resources which may be called over the HTTP protocol to return data. They are platform-independent, allowing communication between applications on different operating systems and application servers. When the database entries are generated by Service-Builder, web services can be generated as well based on Apache Axis. As a result, nearly all of the backend API calls can be made using web services.

At the moment, Liferay only supports web services via SOAP. Liferay also provides a listing of supported web services.
