Heli,

There are more than 90 software implementations in existence. See http://www.soapware.org/directory/4/implementations.

Generally you select an implementation based on the language and platform you need to support. So if you'd like to use Visual Baisc 6.0, you would use Microsoft SOAP Toolkit or PocketSOAP. If you'd like to use Visual Basic .NET or C#, you would use Microsoft .NET. If you would like to use Perl, you would use SOAP::Lite. If you'd like to use C++ on Unix/Linux, you would use gSOAP or WASP Server for C++. And if you would like to use Java, you have a choice of about 20 products. If you prefer open source, I'd go with Apache Axis (the replacement project for Apache SOAP). I discourage you from using Apache SOAP because it doesn't support WSDL.

You can find an extensive list of case studies at these sites:

I have gone through Apache SOAP and Microsoft toolkit, but I am not sure which software is best to use for distributed application. Please provide me some information on that. Also provide me information about some web based distributed application based on soap.
