Short Note on HTTP-GET, HTTP-POST and SOAP

Welcome to CodeSpread!

Web service/WCF services/Rest Services may support HTTP-GET, HTTP-POST or SOAP protocols, which is the underlying way, where request-response communication happens between a client and server.


Client requests a resource from server.
Server sends the resource to the client as a response.


Client submits a resource to the server.
Server sends the acknowledgement to the client as a response.


Exchange of structured information between server and client.
Wider than HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST.
Can handle any communication in a distributive environment

*Note: A resource can be image,text file etc.
