    I have never heard of Web Services as being losely termed.

    Web Services is a term to describe the availability of a service call over the internet. Simply a connection over the TCP stack via HTTP Post, HTTP Get, SOAP or other. Web Services do not marshal data like CORBA, DCOM or Remoting. I see them more as message brokers.

    SOA is still a bit unclear to me.
