such as .... ?

Apart from HTTP, what do you reckon the top three SOAP / XMLP transports
will be?

If I were asked I would suggest:

1) IETF BEEP (RFC 3080) [using the IETF TUNNEL Profile to get through
2) Instant Messaging platforms [either server-based (Hailstorm, Aim, ..) or
P2P-based (IETF APEX, Jabber, Jxta, ..)]
3) Custom solution (written to match your exact needs - e.g. private
protocol over raw TCP connection)
