W3C Abstract: "SOAP is a lightweight protocol for exchange of information in a decentralized, distributed environment. It is an XML based protocol that consists of three parts: an envelope that defines a framework for describing what is in a message and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for expressing instances of application-defined datatypes, and a convention for representing remote procedure calls and responses. SOAP can potentially be used in combination with a variety of other protocols; however, the only bindings defined in this document describe how to use SOAP in combination with HTTP and HTTP Extension Framework."

Industry Quotes about SOAP

  • Don Box, co-author of the SOAP specification, Microsoft: "We're not looking to change SOAP. We're very happy with it, so we think SOAP 1.2 should be the end of the line. If we need to do a SOAP 1.3, then the extensibility model in SOAP 1.2 wasn't that good."
  • Jason Bloomberg, Senior Analyst, ZapThink: "Today's Web services are often little more than software components wrapped in SOAP interfaces, and as such, today's software testing tool vendors only need to add simple XML support to their product lines in order to offer Web Services testing capabilities to their customers."
  • Janet Daly, W3C representative: "Soap version 1.2 is the first Soap spec to go through any kind of independent development and review -- one could say it's the first Soap standard."
