1st: I enjoy the currently interesting discussion in this group about REST 
and whether prior knowledge resides in XML schemas and/or WSDL and all 
that ... I'm new to this so this is good stuff.

2nd: Can you please advise me on the following: given one uses 
document-style SOAP, what kind of programming model and tools would one 
adopt? What are the current best practices?  (I guess use of 
document-style SOAP will coincide with asynchronous invocation in many 

With RPC-style SOAP there are WSDL-to-stub generators and all that; I 
guess a document-centric approach requires sg. different and less 
"brittle" like perhaps callback handlers for certain (optinal) parts of 
SOAP documents. I guess having each and every client/server do all the 
document processing purely on the DOM level would not cut it.
