Back in the days of SQL Server 2000 Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), web service support was provided primarily through SQLXML. The SQL Server 2000 model relied on a loose coupling of SQL Server and Internet Information Services (IIS), making setup and configuration a bit of a hassle. The end result was that a lot of developers found that creating web services in the middle tier was a far more flexible and easier-to-use solution than the SQL Server 2000/SQLXML/IIS model.
