Hi,

I am confused on terminology used in WS.
1. Is a SOAP engine also called as RPC engine.
2. What are the different RPC engines avaiable.
3. When a plugin is provided in IDEs for the Webservices, whats the RPC engines used by each of these:
1. websphere
2. weblogic
3. InteliJ Idea
4. Eclips.

Thanks,
Prabhu

SOAP is a protocol for the client to talk to the webservice. SOAP uses document style messaging where RPC is a remote procedure call system where the remote procedure / method is invoked via sending an xml.

Both these kind of messages are sent over HTTP protocol.

There's no such thing as an RPC engine. RPC is just one of the things that SOAP/WS can be used for. Unfortunately, the name of the "JAX-RPC" API made it seem that WS is all about RPC - not so. That's why JAX-RPC 2.0 was renamed to JAX-WS.

SOAP uses document style messaging where RPC is a remote procedure call system where the remote procedure / method is invoked via sending an xml.



No. SOAP (an XML application) is the underlying mechanism, on top of which both document-style and RPC-style WS can be implemented.

True . I phrased it incorrectly .
SOAP (xml) uses both RPC style and document style for communication.

RPC - synchronous
Message Driven (document style) - Asynchronous and synchronous
