Yep, SOAP is free. Free and controlled by Micro$oft. Hence my immediate dislike ;). SOAP is cool, as a protocol, though. Web services are a good thing. As far as XML-RPC's data description? It's XML. So is SOAP's, as far as I know. I just thought that -- in accordance with the pronunciation of REBOL ("rebel yell") -- we do something with a protocol that isn't controlled by M$. Either way, one of the things I'm finding to be very cool/powerful about REBOL is it's ability to easily pass data to, connect with and otherwise interface with remote systems. //sd Petr Krenzelok wrote:
