Several times, I've been in a situation where I had to compare SOAP and REST. While it’s easy to find that sort of information on the internet, most of the sources are text, and I have to read them again and again. It takes time to read, and it's easy to forget it. I read it, but after a few months, I forgot it again.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I made this infographic. Hopefully, it provides an easier and faster comparison when you need to consider both options.
