Does anyone apart from me think that SOAP is dead in the water? Dave has written a DaveNet on the challenges facing SOAP. Specifically, Dave's gripe is that he wants to be sure that his SOAP implementation is going to be interoperable with the implementations coming from Microsoft and IBM. Unfortunately, from where they're sitting, interoperability is right at the bottom of the agenda. This could have been predicted from the track records of both these companies. How many 'standards' has Microsoft implemented without adding additional complexities of their own?
