Hi, Web services can be manily devided into two parts. "Big" Web Services and RESTful Web Services. You can read more about them here
.you can use either .asmx webservice, WCF or Restful Web service. And JSON is not a web service type. JSON standards for JavaScript Object Notation and it is a syntax for storing and exchanging data. Also you can use SOAP which is a XML based protocol for accessing web services.But i recommend to use JSON . Read some pros and cons between JSON and XML
Here are some tutorials about webservice with android
