What is Web Service? Why should it be used?

Recommended Posts

Can't find any direct answers to my questions in other posts...

 

What is the Prestashop? What is it used for? What does it accomplish?

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

The PrestaShop is an e-commerce software, that can be used to create an online shop to sell stuff (or just to show it).

 

If I refer to your subject (perhaps you missed a word in the body), the WebServices are useful only for programmers, to allow to manage the shop from an external application, be it another Web application, an Android or iOS native application, a desktop application or whatever.

It is a facility because manipulating the database directly is difficult, can be prone to errors, can change with versions of PS, and can even be impossible with some hosts (allowing DB access only from their servers, for security reasons they say).
