Web services play a vital role in the paradigms of distributed computing and grid computing. Web services can be implemented in different platforms, but the most commonly used platforms are .NET and J2EE as they provide a wide variety of tools for creation and integration of Web services to any existing business application. The selection of appropriate platform for implementation is purely based on performance offered by the particular platform. This paper focuses on analyzing the performance of a generic model composed of three tiers for implementing and consuming Web services. This generic model is implemented with four different combinations of .NET and J2EE in different tiers. The analysis of performance is carried out with a novel set of four performance metrics proposed and the metrics are based on time spent for actual response and network traffic involved between the different tiers. The performance metrics measurement is observed on the model to study performance of platforms deployed for implementation of Web services.
