Problem statement: Currently it is evident that the web service is emerging as a solution for business applications and deployment of web services witnesses exponential growth. Web services rely on networks particularly internet for implementing and consuming them in different applications. Whenever a network is involved in a software system, network traffic payload measurement and communication pattern play a key role in determining and enhancing performance of the software system. Thus, this study emphasizes the need for network traffic payload measurement in evaluating performance of implementation of web services. Approach: Further empirical measurement of the network traffic payload in implementation of web services is carried out to analyze performance of realization of web services. In this work, the web service realization is done through a model with three-tier approach which is suitable for business applications. Results and Conclusion: This study reports empirical results of network traffic involved in different implementations of web services.
