SOAP: Simple Object Access Protocol

SOAP is a lightweight, XML-based protocol for the exchange of information. It is for accessing services and objects on remote servers. Most (if not all) current implementations focus on using HTTP as the transport protocol.

SOAP messages consist of three distinct parts: an envelope that defines what is in a message, a set of encoding rules for application-defined datatypes, and a way to represent remote procedure calls and responses.
