/me knows little about SOAP, btw.
Sorry. I actually don't know. Someone knowledgeable will undoubtedly explain at some point...
SOAP is a general purpose, object-oriented messaging protocol. It's XML message can be passed through a number of protocols. It is highly generic and allows users to specify new datatypes.
XML-RPC is a narrowly defined RPC mechanism that defines around 10 data types (only about 3 are needed [string, array, struct]), specifies the transport mechanism (HTTP), and has no provisions for user-defined extensions.
I have worked with both in several languages, including Perl, Python, PHP, Java, and C. For those
I decided a long time ago that I am not using anything that Whiner is part of, and that makes me sleep better at night!
