SOAP::Lite is so sloooooow

[ #12705 ]
I am working on a project where we use SOAP::Lite. As we have ironed out most of the functional issues suddenly we started to receive timeouts from one of the client machines.

A quick search by one of our managers led to the ultimate proof why we should not use SOAP::Lite at all. The report Latency Performance of SOAP Implementations shows that SOAP::Lite is far the slowest SOAP implementation on the market.

While probably they did not use mod_perl when doing the experiments for this article, it looks really bad that SOAP::Lite came out 10 times slower than other solutions.

Returning to our case: For now it seems we have a 10 fold increase in time when transfering the same data via SOAP instead of reading from an NFS share, even though we are using mod_perl and the data is already in the memory of the SOAP server.

Maybe buying bigger hardware will solve this problem as well.
