When it comes to Web Services, SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) is the complete package for Enterprise-level Transaction and Messaging Security. That is where SOAP reigns supreme.
1. Web Services Security (WSS)
WSS supports identity through intermediaries - not just point-to-point (SSL) - via XML Signature (data integrity) and XML Encryption (data privacy).
2. Web Services Atomic Transaction (WS-AT)
SOAP provides ACID compliant, two-phase commits across distributed transactional resources via WS-AT (an OASIS protocol).
3. Web Services Reliable Messaging (WS-RM)
WS-RM is a messaging protocol that has successful/retry logic built-in and provides end-to-end reliability in the presence of software component, system, or network failures.
For the trade show registration application developed for Microsoft and Symbol Technologies, we used SOAP to support transmission of data from Symbol's hand-held devices running Pocket PC and CE, over the web to a Microsoft SQL server for tracking.
