This paper focuses on exposing computing and database resources as Web services for providing interoperability among clients and servers that uses diverse technologies. A systematic performance analysis of two technologies, the RESTful Web Service and the SOAP-based Web service used for exposing resources as Web services is reported. A novel Hybrid Web service that combines the advantages of both RESTful and SOAP-based Web services is proposed and analyzed.
