sms web service

i wanted to create a sms gateway platform,
as i understand, i will be creating a sms webservice invoked by SOAP calls to send sms.
I already have the aggregator in place who will deal with this.
I will be creating an API which the clients will use to send sms.
this API will talk with some database where all the messages will be stored which can be used to generate reports and other stuff.
I am new in this field , can someone advise if my understanding is correct or am i messing things.

Unless you need the security provisions in the WS-* tools, there appears to be no reason to use SOAP when a RESTful architecture would be so very much simpler.

There are links in the ranch FAQ for web services that will introduce you to the differences.

Thanks Bill for the reply
I wanted to use SOAP as the aggregator provides a SOAP wen service interface and for the time being we intend to use this aggregator.

Can you please shed light on how will the wen service and the database API work together.

Or you can use already working API such as CS Networks API.

Just register at CS Networks web site and try it yourself.

I agree. Here's the link:
