SOAP is now commonly used as the main transport protocol in Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA), but it is debatable whether SOAP can really meet the performance needs of e-Science. This paper presents an extended experimental evaluation of the performance of SOAP with Attachments(SwA)[1]. The performance of different SOAP variants: standard SOAP, SwA using MIME(Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension), SWA using DIME(Direct Internet Message Encapsulation), and XSOAP, are evaluated in communicating multiple floating-point matrices and a number of complex data structs. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate that SOAP performance in communicating large volumes of data could be simply and effectively improved by adopting SwA. More over, SwA using DIME is identified to be a faster and more efficient message processing approach that using MIME.
