- Web Service:
A web service communicates between machines, not human users, over a network. Its interface uses a machine-processable format (specifically WSDL). Other systems interact with the Web service using SOAP-messages, typically conveyed using HTTP with XML in conjunction with other Web-related standards. Cloudsnap often establishes connections through web services when SOAP APIs are transmitted.
Persistent bidirectional communication channel between a browser (client) and backend service. Unlike an HTTP API Call, a web socket can transport various protocols and deliver messages between server and client without polling.
Set of steps that define how a business process transfers data from a source to destination database. Initiated by a trigger, the workflow can reformat or recalculate data as its passes through each step in order. (See Trigger.)
Generally, Cloudsnap workflows start in the cloud or on-premises network and sends data to the cloud, where it is stored and managed. A workflow, however, can take the reverse path.
