Communication Protocols Choices


XML & Web services: Communication Protocols Choices

  1. Communication Protocols Choices (3 messages)

    I understand HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST are the protocol that allows web pages to communicate.

    However, I have heard that there are XML-based protocols that I don't quite familar. I think SOAP (= XML RPC) is used for XML Web Services?

    But how about XML-GET, XML-POST? Are they alternatives to traditional HTTP protocols?

    If anyone knows them well, or know some good pointers, please advise. Thanks!!

    Please read at least the intro. parts of the SOAP specifications at It is no way near to what you think, if I derive info. from your email properly. There is only HTTP GET and POST, but XML gets embedded inside !

    so u mean XML-GET and XML-POST doesn't exist? I saw it in the job post, thats why I am curious about that...

    GET and POST are two methods on HTTP protocol. XML is *NOT* a protocol. It DOES NOT and CANNOT have GET / POST. Hope it is clear. Curious to know which job posting is that, better be careful about those guys :-). Not funnier than what I saw yesterday on another job ad. 15 years experience in Windows CE!! I dobt even the Windows CE project team will have it :-)) It is not even half as old :-))
