SOAP - SOAP is a protocol which was designed before REST. The main idea behind designing SOAP was to ensure that programs built on different platforms and programming languages could exchange data in an easy manner. It relies on XML to send the messages.
REST - This was designed specifically for working with components such as media components, files, or even objects on a particular hardware device. Any web service that is defined on the principles of REST can be called a RestFul web service. A Restful service would use the normal HTTP verbs of GET, POST, PUT and DELETE for working with the required components.
