Web Services and Financial Services industry (Trading)

I was having a discussion with Manu the other day usage of services in the real-time trading systems. I decided to google for some information regading this. This post is a book(blog)mark of all the results for reference. This is what I understood after glancing through these stuff. Trading involves mutiple parties and hence multiple systems. The use cases for web services is integration. Either Technology Integration / Application Integration. Even if we are not there today with respect to performance, Eventually Web Services will get into this domain primarily because of the Integration involved in the life of a Trade.
