   Re: What Does SOAP/WS Do that A REST System Can't?

Hmmmm, what Does SOAP/WS Do that A REST System Can't?


1) Provides big vendors with new vendor lock-in and marketing spin 

2) Adds additional complexity and obfuscation that are unnecessary in many 

3) Adds a lot of overhead.

4) Provides a marked reduction in scalability, especially when used by the 
unwashed masses as an RPC mechanism.

5) Highlights the beauty of KISS-based approaches.

6) Lets you create an acronym that has no formal expansion, which sounds like 
an oxymoron.

7) Gives the XML-Dev group, and the industry as a whole, lots to 
discuss/argue about.

8) Opens up the door to silly questions.
