Web service invocation sans SOAP

Web service invocation sans SOAP. developerWorks: Web service invocation sans SOAP “SOAP has become almost synonymous with Web services, even though it is just one of many possible bindings for accessing Web services. This means that applications that make use of Web services usually do so through APIs tied to a specific implementation of SOAP. This series of articles will describe a more generic, SOAP-independent approach to invoking Web services called the Web Service Invocation Framework (WSIF). It was specifically designed to invoke Web services described using the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) directly, hiding the complexity of underlying access protocols such as SOAP.” [ZopeNewbies]
