RE: Will Web Services Kill HTTP?
HFN: "while the applications may differ, the fundamental architectural principles don't have to". That might need a little exposition. The claim among many is that use of the RPC style calls in some SOAP systems directly contravenes the REST principles claimed as the central architectural and bounding principles of "the Web". I don't have trouble accepting that there will be Internet systems that operate differently from these principles and therefore, in strict terms, are "off the Web" and further, that "on" and "off" the web doesn't mean impermeable boundaries for information. So it seems to me that clarity in the defining and bounding architectures is vital. len From: Henrik Frystyk Nielsen [mailto:henrikn@m...] Exactly - use HTTP for what HTTP is good at and SOAP for what it is good at. Note that while the applications may differ, the fundamental architectural principles don't have to. >Web services don't have to kill >HTTP. In fact, they can't.
