Except SOAP is a bloated designed-by-commitee implementation that has a lot of features you probably don't need :)

My suggestion is keep it simple! XML-RPC with a single-parameter to each function, that being an XML serialized object (or equivalent) will be much easier to process and read.

And don't forget to encrypt the stream!

    Moreover, the latency on many SOAP implementations is also a concern when compared to similar CORBA or RPC implementations - See http://www.caip.rutgers.edu/TASS L/Papers/p2p-p2pws02-soap.pdf.
