While poking around the Micro.blog XML-RPC documentation, I had a flashback about SOAP. I had some limited experience with SOAP and it was always a huge pain. Looking back on it now, it’s striking how much was touted about SOAP middleware, as if that was what anyone using SOAP cared about.
I’m glad SOAP has been replaced by simpler technologies like REST. Simplicity eventually wins out in the end. I guess that’s why XML-RPC is still around.
