Sure, I prefer XML > over key-value pairs. That doesn't make SOAP a good idea. sometimes it makes SOAP a great idea. I've recently designed a ws where the user sends us a large set of structured data called a 'contract', which we process and make available when the client logs into our web site. to the user, who already has all this data available on his/her backoffice system, pressing a button sure beats filling out an endless series of html forms for every contract. for us, we get data that we can validate and feed almost straight into the XML infrastructure of our backend. all without compromising on security or resilience. to me, that's good technology. /m Martin Klang http://www.o-xml.org - the object-oriented XML programming language
