1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols

A client that implements this protocol can use the Autodiscover Publishing and Lookup SOAP-Based Web Service Protocol [MS-OXWSADISC] or the Autodiscover Publishing and Lookup Protocol [MS-OXDSCLI] to identify the target endpoint to use for each operation.

This protocol uses the SOAP protocol as described in [SOAP1.1] to specify the structure information exchanged between the client and server. This protocol uses the XML protocol as described in [XMLSCHEMA1] and [XMLSCHEMA2] to describe the message content sent to and from the server.

This protocol uses SOAP over HTTP as described in [RFC2616], and SOAP over HTTPS as described in [RFC2818], as shown in the following figure.
