What is a WebService?

A WebService is a powerful technology for communication between the PDM system GAIN Collaboration and other applications. It enables automatic and autonomous retrieval of data to make it available in other applications or locations.

WebServices are based on a standardized technology built on XML (Extensible Markup Language) and HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol). Here, a provided API offers an interface that can be used by another application.

Advantages of PDM coupling via WebServices


WebServices offers a convenient solution to connect different applications comfortably. Here, the application only has to use the functions provided.


Provided functions enable a wide range of solutions. These can be combined to assemble the data needed.


Provided functions can be called from different applications. This way, information and data can be distributed to the appropriate places.

WebServices can be used by different operating systems and programming languages.
