About ASIs and Web Services
Web services can make ASIs externally available by using information protocols (such as HTTP) and data formats (such as XML), and other communication protocols, such as SOAP, Universal Description Discovery and Integration (UDDI), and WSDL. Because ASIs are business services, ASIs can be exposed externally as Web services. However, while ASIs can be published as Web services, not all Web services are ASIs.
For more information about Web services and how to use them, see Integration Platform Technologies: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration.
