Here is a great article describing the details of RPC vs. Document
Literal (and Doc Lit Wrapped as well).

There are really four styles, RPC/Lit, RPC/Encoded, Doc/Lit and
Doc/Encoded, with Doc/Encoded not even sanctioned by the WSI and nobody
uses it at all. The article is quite dated now, because it suggests that
there are occasions when RPC is better than Doc. Currently, the web
services world has drifted far more to Doc/Lit. Doc is preferred over
RPC for interoperability concerns, mostly.

Can you elaborate on "document style rather than RPC style"?  Why is
document style preferable?


In either case, you should use document style rather than RPC style.
