Webservice or just a normal DLL?
I'm currently implementing the biometric part of our cashless catering system (a c# project), and I have decided to make it independent to the actual program, and have it in it's own database, so I can use it for future projects too (so we would only have to enroll the kids once).
The question I have is this - which, if you were doing this, would you use? A web service? or a standard DLL, for interfacing with the biometrics database?
Both have advantages, and both have disadvantages. So... opinions?

The webservice would be vastly more interoperable between diverse systems and is easily encryptable via SSL. It would have a slight performance hit but nothing noticible unless you are processing several thousand a second.
If you are sticking with all windows apps then the DLL could be fractionally easier to code.
