soap services can work with different protocols like http / https, tcp, netNamedpipe, msmq where as restful can work only with http
soap services are heavier than restful as soap envelope contains multiple data for WS-Addressing, WS-Policy, WS-Security, WS-Federation, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Coordination, WS-AtomicTransaction, and WS-RemotePortlets where as rest services has only required
data in JSON or XML format
REST are transport independent where as SOAP is transport dependent.
Thumb rule to choose one from them is when service clients are only HTTP then go for RESTful where as when your service can be called
through nettcp, netNamedpipe, msmq for enterprise applications or background process go for soap.
