SOAP stands for Simple Object Access Protocol and is an interoperability protocol. SOAP uses structured data in XML format which is then transmitted over HTTP (the same standard as used to deliver web sites).
SOAP was first conceived in 1998 and was one of the more widely used earlier methods for applications to exchange data. A related interoperability protocol is REST which has similar objectives but it is somewhat simpler to implement and is acquiring greater popularity as a result.
