Generating and invoking web services is a central part of the Liferay development experience. After all, what good is it if you can’t generate remote services for an app you’re developing, or call Liferay’s built-in remote services? It’s no good at all! Liferay without web services would be like a luxury car without wheels. Fortunately, Liferay comes with full set of JSON and SOAP web services that you can invoke until your heart’s content. Liferay also provides Service Builder to generate local and remote services for your apps.
The tutorials that follow show you how to work with web services in Liferay. You’ll learn how to use Service Builder to generate remote services for your apps. You’ll also learn how to invoke those services, and any other Liferay web services.
