SOAP Performance: Three W3C Candidate Recommendations Published

   W3C is pleased to announce the advancement of three technical reports
   to Candidate Recommendations, offering an optimal way to transfer
   binary data like images in Web services messages. Produced by the
   XML Protocol Working Group, SOAP Version 1.2 is a lightweight protocol
   for exchanging structured information in a decentralized, distributed
   environment such as the Web. Comments are welcome through 15 September.

   * Using an XML Schema datatype, "XML-binary Optimized Packaging (XOP)"
     allows efficient serialization of XML element content.

   * Using a XOP-based selective encoding, the "SOAP Message
     Transmission Optimization Mechanism" optimizes hop-by-hop exchanges
     between SOAP nodes.

   * The "Resource Representation SOAP Header Block" allows applications
     to carry a representation of a resource in a SOAP message.
