web application definition

P: n/a
Can we say a web application means an application with web user interface?
Do u think this is a good definition? Since web services doesn't have web
user interface, it should be distingushed from web application. And web
application includes internet and intranet web applications.

Many web apps may not have a browser type interface. Web services may
support WindowsForms interfaces or may communicate with Web or Windows
services on remote machines over http. So, I think you would have to say
that web services are anything that uses web or Internet connected servers
and services in providing user, business, or enterprise services.

Make my last sentence read "web applications are anything...." rather than
"web services are anything...."

I would go with your definition. A web application might be using web
services behind the scenes, or not, but I would define it by the user
interface. A windows application using web services I would define as a
smart client application (the new term for client server.).

I agree with Rick
Web Service is not really web appliction, It only transmitted by http.
An application should provide a UI(web ui,windows form ui or console ui
etc.) which can be operated by user.
