SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) is an XML based protocol for accessing objects and services platform-independently.

Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) is an XML/HTTP-based protocol for accessing services, objects and servers in a platform-independent manner.
Use can use Java to implement a SOAP client to talk to a web service. Java is one of the many languages that support implementing a SOAP client either by utilizing SDKs or some extended APIs.
Hope this helps.
