Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)

SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) is a lightweight, XML-based, protocol for exchange of information in a decentralized, distributed environment. Its primary uses are message passing and remote procedure call (RPC) -- causing a remote computer to perform a computation.

SOAP is XML-based and has three parts: an envelope that defines a framework for describing what is in a message and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for expressing instances of application-defined datatypes, and a convention for representing remote procedure calls and responses.
