Soap


Anybody know anything about SOAP? Is it an alternative to HTTP POST or would you use them together? Is SOAP secure or has it any inbuilt security features?

soap is a convention to exchange data using xml normally over http. in relation to http posts, you would do an http post to pass a block of XML data, which forms a soap object to a server, so it's essentially 2 levels above an http post (that's not osi layers of course...)

yes I know a bit.
it's an http POST basically,
looks a bit like this:
Code:
POST /webservice/cascade HTTP/1.1
Host: wls.primala.vipa.bt.com
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 223

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
<soap:Body>
   <getUPIPrice>
          <UPI>UPI:207655:E:2</UPI>
   </getUPIPrice>
</soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

post is part of the http protocol. to http soap is just it's payload, just a bunch of characters.
