Voxera118397yWell. Soap when both platforms work well together is very easy.
In c# I just register the soap url and get a class with all methods in that handles everything under the hood and also all soap defined classes are replicated to real c# classes.
From php its a bit more work but a colleague wrote a class generating script that does mostly the same for php. Java also has something similar.
But if you have to implement a client on your own its another story.
Version 1 of the webservice standard was ambiguous on how arrays should be implemented and naturally c# and java choose different paths so any api with an array was unusable from the other language.
So I had to do our own implementation using xml parser and write, thats not something I like to do again.
TheShell3057yI'm using java and spring. The basic SOAP was easy, but once the special requirements came into the picture, SOAP made it a hell of a lot harder to get things done right.
rezadhah847yWell, i think that is not very SOAPisticated api ..
now imagine you need to do same but without api docs
