This project is not covered by Drupal’s security advisory policy.

Security: This module is considered insecure by Drupal security team and all of its releases have been unpublished. You are strongly encouraged to disable the module on your site. The Services module, from which Web Services was forked, may be a possible replacement depending on your requirements.

#D7CX: I pledge that Web Services module will have a full Drupal 7 release on the day that Drupal 7 is released.

Let other sites to communicate with your site with this AP, just like Google, Flickr, Facebook do! Choose which sites might publish content, change user information or simply integrate a Flash application with your site.

If you want to access other sites' services, you should take a look on Web Services API.
