  • Web Services use XML to code and to decode data, and SOAP (or REST) to transport the data
    What is WSDL? [one of our four-letter word]
    WSDL is an XML-based language for locating and describing the Web services
    What is SOAP?
    SOAP is an XML-based protocol to let applications exchange information over HTTP.
    Or more simple: SOAP is a protocol for accessing a Web Service.
