Saying SOAP doesn't scale doesn't make a whole load of sense to me anyway. It is a specification and it's scalability will only proportional to the language and platform it happens to be implemented on , no?

Anyway, in my case it just directly calls a COM object from the web page and returns the value, so what's unscalable about that? I have worked on sites and tested site with >1000 hits per second, so I don't see problems myself.

Anyway, the functionality offered by XML-RPC will make it more usable and popular than anything just now, no matter how scalable it is.
