Roots of the REST/SOAP Debate

Paul Prescod


In order to communicate over networks we need standardized data formats and protocols. But how do we move forward toward this goal? One popular debate centers around the best way to define new data formats. XML dominates this area and so the primary question left is how and whether to use schemas and if so, what schema language to use. This paper will address a different question: How will we standardize the protocols used to transport the XML documents? This paper will describe three different strategies and attempt to summarize their strengths and weaknesses from an admittedly partisan point of view.
