DSS REST vs DSS SOAP Api performance

Hi,

Just question around this topic REST Vs SOAP client

https://community.developers.refinitiv.com/questions/11531/recommended-dss-client-soap-or-rest.html

Will REST client api has better performance compare to SOAP client?

Thanks

Zohan

Hi @zohan.sim1, As of now the performance of DSS REST API is exactly the same as that of SOAP API. As you might be aware, the REST API is the strategic version and SOAP API will be deprecated at some point in future.

Besides, REST API has lower overhead in terms of transport envelopes and multiple helper libraries are available for each programming language.
