I would like to implement a web service which can accept the incoming audio stream.
Web service support soap, http(get, post), mime.... these protocols. But if without soap, we will lose the biggest advantage of web service.
Can I use soap to transform the audio stream? How will it turn into xml messaging?
If not, is MIME binding the only way to do this?

Don't even think about web services for this. This is digital signal processing -- not web services. I Don't even want to try to imagine how it could be converted to XML -- the results would be horrendous...

Hi, Kyle,
at the right moment, web services is only for the digital data exchange, not for media transferring.
But as a new generation distributed system, is it only limited in this way? I just want to implement the IBM viavoice in a new distributed system, Is it possible to use MIME to transfer the audio signal through this environment?
Btw, if U works for IBM in Raleigh, I will send an internal mail
to discuss about this.
Thanks

You could discover a web service via XML that will delegate your connection to the correct audio stream.
