what is SOAP ? why iti is used?..

Answer / anirban

I hav a doubt about one point here..Can SOAP really get
through firewalls? How is it possible? In some enterprise
applications the firewall has to ensure that no spyware or
other hazardous message breach through....Any hazardous
message can be of SOAP format...then if it gets through it
can disrupt the whole system..Is there any other check for
messages at some point before it hits the actual
application ..say a gateway or something where it checks
whether the SOAP message is valid or not ..
