You lost me right about there

William Brogden: "Another important, but frequently unappreciated point is that, in contrast with REST which requires HTTP, SOAP messages can be moved by any transport method which can handle Unicode text"

That's one confusing sentence. "Rest, which depends on HTTP" - that's like saying Object Oriention depends on Java. Unicode? You can move unicode text HTTP and you can move SOAP across systems that can't handle unicode (as long as it's encoded as UTF-8).

Otherwise, interesting read, but light - it doesn't get into the problems with either approach, which is what we need for field work.
