Subject RE: Advantage of SOAP against RMI ???
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2001 10:56:16 GMT
One disadvantage that I have found with SOAP depends on the time taken to
execute the SOAP envelope on the server!!

You could have a call that could take some time and client will more than
likely timeout!

Keep in mind when performing tasks that could take over a minute to do them
as part of a queuing algorithm. The server can then notify the client using
a different protocol to HTTP...

To summarise...SOAP over HTTP does not work well when time taken to execute
the server process is lengthy...You can extend the client timeout but that
in itself can lead to problems...
