1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols

A client that implements this protocol can use either the Autodiscover Publishing and Lookup SOAP-Based Web Service Protocol, as described in [MS-OXWSADISC], or the Autodiscover Publishing and Lookup Protocol, as described in [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 of information exchanged between the client and the server. The protocol uses the XML protocol as described in [XMLSCHEMA1] and [XMLSCHEMA2] to describe the message content sent to and from the server.

The OOF Web Service Protocol uses SOAP over HTTP, as described in [RFC2616], and SOAP over HTTPS, as described in [RFC2818], as shown in the following layering diagram.
