Simple Object Access Protocal (SOAP)

Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)

SOAP is an XML-based protocol designed to exchange structured and typed information on the Web,
enabling Web Services based on a shared and open Web infrastructure. The standard consists of an
envelope defining a framework for describing what is in a message and how to process it, a set of
encoding rules for expressing application-defined data types, and rules for representing remote procedure
calls and responses. SOAP can be used in combination with a variety of existing Internet protocols,
including HTTP, SMTP, and MIME.
