A web service is used when we want our application to deliver data to other web sites or applications. In this tutorial we will see how to create our models and controllers in order to make our private data available to other applications and we will also write client side code in order to access the data that we will make available to other applications.

In ASP.NET MVC developers usually use Web API in order to deliver data to other applications but in Umbraco we can use surface controllers which is better in our Umbraco installation.

In order to access the data from the surface controller we will use jQuery which is a library that most of the web developers use.
