There's simple, though non-obvious reasons why the common use of SOAP
will never see this type of growth. Primarily, it's because the a
priori contract that is present between a SOAP sender and a SOAP
receiver is insufficient to generate any network effects. HTTP provides
a much richer contract. And for that matter, so does FTP, SMTP, and
every other application protocol in existence.
Can you substantiate that claim?
And why would business programming (read: middleware) ever require the
growth curves of a mass medium?
