Alternative to SOAP protocols

Hi,

This might not be directly related to the exam and is more of an architecture question.

SOAP is the preferred protocol of communication for web services.

As of today or in near future,are there alternative protocols available and possible. Possible yes, but are there any alternatives? If yes, can anyone list some.

Can anyone provide links?

regards
Vasim

As a lighter-weight variant, REST comes to mind. The Web Services FAQ has some links on that.

That's correct and this is why I will move this post to the dedicated Web Services forum.

Thanks for your comprehension
