Web applications are the ones which can be run/accessed from different internet browsers like IE,Chrome,Firefox etc. For eg: yahoo.com, gmail.com or any website. All the web applications do not necessarily use Webservices. The testing of web-based applications is mostly functional, performance, GUI and UX based.There is less of backend testing involved here.

Webservices, on the other hand, is a middleware technology based on XML used to exchange data between different applications and platforms. Here, the data from a single source is pulled by multiple web applications based on their requirement and displayed on their respective platforms. Here testing using SOAPUI tool involves sending request XML and verifying the response XML. Further, we compare the response XML with the back end database and verify whether the data is correctly displayed in the front end.

Thus testing Web applications and Web services are entirely different.

Pl. add to/correct my reply, so that I could make my answer more perfect.

Thanks
