"What is SOAP? The SOAP specification defines a simple, Internet-friendly
way of using XML to send messages and to access services. SOAP is important
to e-business because it provides a flexible, natural way of building
applications whose pieces are distributed across networks. With XML and
SOAP, each business can choose its own internal implementation technology,
such as Enterprise JavaBeans, Microsoft Component Object Model (COM),
or traditional languages such as COBOL. Yet any business can access a
service, such as a parts catalog, or send a purchase order to or from
any other business. When you implement these services, SOAP makes it easy
to bind to the programming language or object system of your choice. SOAP's
built-in support for Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) also makes it easy to
invoke methods on remote objects, using XML and HTTP, so you can use SOAP
to create distributed systems within your own organization too. SOAP is
simple. The specification is short and easy to understand. Best of all,
it takes only a few lines of code to build real SOAP messages that do
useful work. "
