Which is preferred SOAP OR REST for Cloud integration


In most use cases you will only have the option to choose SOAP or REST when connecting to a cloud service. If the cloud provider supports both then you have to choose, that is seldom the case.

I believe the REST is the most powerful adapter that you can use. It has a limitation that you will have to create XSD/schema self. So if the data structure is big the SOAP is probably faster to get to use. I have seen cases, where SOAP adapter was not enough because it could not react to all the status codes, send by the server.

REST is probably also the one you will see be supported for longest at any of the cloud providers.

The only bad thing with the REST is the lack of support for OAUTH or what they are using for authentication of the interface.
