Interoperability is ensured by basing WS on standards like HTTP and XML which have well-defined behavior when it comes to platform differences (like character encodings, line endings and byte order).
Once you have figured out how to transport XML over HTTP without having to worry about platform differences, everything else (SOAP, WSDL, WS-Security, etc.) are just XML applications on top of that. [ July 23, 2008: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
