in thread (OT) Webservices – really progress?
SOAP means Simple Object Access Protocol; it is nothing but a fancy remote procedure call mechanism.
Granted living out in the wild and totally open to anyone will likely be an exception. However, webservices are touted as the tool for electronic B2B and as such, they will have to live in semi-private situations in the wild where they aren't necessarily open to anyone, but certainly accessible.
