That's right , indeed the WS-Security is part of SOAP, but i have mentioned it as its Pros because of the flexibility and the fact that you can implement your custom security needs while in SSL you need to follow the protocol , but of course you need to consider the cost of the performance and bandwidth.
Good point though :) therefore i have edited the text
Thank you, Ali. At least they didn't make WS-Security mandatory in SOAP, so you're free to do security in the transport layer when using SOAP.
