SOAP must I use only for web service?

I saw in the morning a magazine about SOAP and it was saying about IBM SOAP... Is it a single way to work with SOAP or not?


thanks in advance!

SOAP is a data format. There are a myriad of ways to use it, including different protocols to transport it, and lots of implementations from all kinds of vendors and organizations. So I think you misunderstood something about that article.

SOAP is just the payload of some other application protocol, predominantly HTTP. The various standard bodies just tinker with SOAP headers. So I presume IBM SOAP would mean that they have put something in the header part of the SOAP Envelope.

So, it is only a protocol, right?

You are correct.
