A flurry of “It’s not REST vs. SOAP” comments in response to Bob McMillan’s latest REST article.

I helped Bob with that story, and I know I’m always careful to frame the argument as “REST vs. Web services” rather than “REST vs. SOAP”, so I apologize for not communicating that point to Bob well enough. Heck, I spent all that time on the XML Protocol WG for a reason, you know; to make sure SOAP became the best darned PEP replacement it could be.

But I suppose there’s an inevitability to this confusion, since the word “SOAP” brings along with it an implied use, which is contrary to REST. Unfortunate, but whad’ya gonna do?
