What is the difference between Console, Windows, Web applications and Web services?


Console applications are light weight programs run inside the command prompt (DOS) window. They are commonly used for test applications. Windows Applications are form based standard Windows desktop applications for common day to day tasks. Microsoft word is an example of a Windows application.

Web applications are programs that used to run inside some web server (e.g., IIS) to fulfill the user requests over the http. A typical example of web application is Hotmail and Google.

Web services are web applications that provide services to other applications over the internet. Google search engine’s web service, e.g., allows other applications to delegate the task of searching over the internet to Google web service and use the result produced by it in their own applications.
