   RE: [xml-dev] ( Slightly off topic ) JMS and other messaging

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

>> CHIUSANO, Joseph:
I consider SOAP to be an XML messaging protocol, so (at least for me)
"messaging vs. SOAP" does not "make sense".  

SOAP isn't a messaging protocol. It can be used as an enveloping
technology for a messaging protocol if there is a messaging protocol to
begin with. For example ebXML has defined a (reliable) messaging
protocol that utilizes SOAP. To offer an analogy, an envelope isn't a
postal service. Saying "messaging vs SOAP" is close to saying "postal
service vs envelope".
