Thanks, but the nature of that interop has been questioned repeatedly without much of an answer. See, for example: http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200204/msg00683.html http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200204/msg00697.html http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200204/msg00717.html SOAP appears to offer interop at the RPC end and flexibility at the messaging end, but there's not much of a middle ground in between. For those of us who think RPC has serious limits, that's not much of an offering. XML-RPC sounds better for the RPC-interop end, while REST sounds better for the messaging end. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com
