There are several articles discussing this very topic on XML.com. In
some ways, a REST architectural style, is simpler and easier to
implement than a SOAP interface. The last web services type application
I developed, was solely based on REST as it didn't need the extra stuff
that SOAP involved, the standard protocols were secure enough. I might
also suggest taking a look at EBXML and their messaging standards as an
alternative to just SOAP.
