"nice" bits in it that are far from simple and its got some tough
challenges (security for example) that aren't addressed. SOAP isn't
complex, the complaint people make about it is that it is _too easy
and hides the network_. So not doing SOAP might have many reasons but
it can't be both complex and too easy.

I've seen your discussion regards to OTA.
Do you have or know where I can find an OTA server example built in .Net?
Where can I find the OTA wsdl to import? With provided OTA stuff I can only find the isolated .xsd files. Isn't there an OTA wsdl to get imported?
Thanks in advance

the person writing the original article was, in fact, talking about
orchestration rather than choreography.
