Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Web service standards: SOAP, REST, OData, and more, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Services.
So far, we've covered the components of a…web service, the messaging format and transport protocols.…But in the eye of the developer,…the development manager, and the IT professional,…the real choice you end up making is in choosing a web service standard.…The most common standards you might hear about are SOAP,…Rest and Odata and you might hear a lot of debate…about which one is best. It can turn very quickly into an…impassioned argument but it's best just to understand these terms and how they work…as I previously described, SOAP is strictly speaking a message format.…
