Welcome to the JavaRanch, Laura! SOAP is the only standard message protocol for web services. While most web services are only exposed through HTTP (sending SOAP messages in the HTTP request/response body), sometimes the SOAP messages are transmitted over other protocols such as through SMTP or via JMS/MOM.
