A significant challenge for web services is to find reliable and efficient methods to transfer large data between them. This paper describes the problem of scalable data transport between web services, and proposes a solution: the development of a modular Server/Client library that uses SOAP as a control channel while the actual data transport is accomplished by various protocol implementation. Apart from file transport, the proposed approach offers the facility of direct data streaming between web services, an approach that could benefit workflow execution time.
