1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols

A client that implements this protocol can use the Autodiscover Publishing 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 (4) to use for each operation.

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

Clients can contact this protocol by using SOAP over HTTP, as described in [RFC2616], and SOAP over HTTPS, as described in [RFC2818], as shown in the following layering diagram.
