SQL server 2008 : HTTP SOAP Endpoints

A powerful feature introduced in SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008 continues providing support for native HTTP SOAP endpoints, which use the XML-based SOAP protocol. HTTP SOAP endpoints provide an efficient, secure, easy-to-configure option for providing SQL Server–based
web service support. The built-in HTTP SOAP endpoint support makes it much easier to expose SQL Server functionality as web services than was previously possible via the Internet Information Server (IIS)–based web services available in SQL Server 2000.
