What is the WSDL or REST web service that does the geocoding?

Looking at the Find Address sample I know I can use the esri.tasks.locator object with Geocoder URL ( ) and call the addressToLocations method. Is there a WSDL or REST web service URL I can call on the ESRI server to do the geocoding directly?

The reason for that is I may need to access it in the back end of my code and I cannot use the JavaScript API to handle that. A direct call to the proper web service thru codes will have to be the way to go. Where can find such information? Can it be done like that?

Thanks in advance.
