  • Web services require tight coupling of the applications they integrate. 
    • Applications communicate via message exchange requiring strong coupling in terms of reference and time. 
  • The Web is strongly based on the opposite principles. Information is published in a persistent and widely accessible manner. 
    • Any other application can access this information at any point in time without having to request the publishing process to directly refer to it as a receiver of its information.
