Hi @Sanjana12 

 

HttpSoapConnection : It is a HTTP protocol that uses SOAP to make the communication using SOAP Based web services.

 

HttpClientRequest : It is a generic class or component used to make web services calls.

 

  • HttpSoapConnection is specific to SOAP protocol and SOAP-based web services, whereas HttpClientRequest is focused on the more general HTTP protocol.

  • HttpSoapConnection is used in scenarios where SOAP-based communication is required. HttpClientRequest is used across all web development scenarios where HTTP communication is involved, including RESTful APIs.

  • SOAP messages handled by HttpSoapConnection are typically XML-based, while HttpClientRequest can handle various formats including JSON, XML, and others.

 

In summary, HttpSoapConnection is specialized for SOAP-based web services using the SOAP protocol, whereas HttpClientRequest is a general-purpose tool for making HTTP requests in web development, supporting various protocols and data formats beyond SOAP.

Akshay
