When/how REST replaced SOAP

When/how REST replaced SOAP

When/how REST replaced SOAP


I am currently writing my thesis about IT technologies etc. etc. and I have one chapter where i compare REST and SOAP, but I can not find how and when (i mean some king of events in the past) REST started (mainly in Web) to replace SOAP as technology of web services.

I would like to show you a graph in Google Insights for Search Tool :

Google Insights for Search

As you can see in 2008 there was some king of intersection number of keywords searche for rest api and soap api. So, i would like to rely on some sources (of coures I do not have them) or events/facts why this intersection may occured... event in the recent past.

Do you get my point of view ? I know that could be quite unique approach to the topic, but i would like to explain of this soap and rest swap.
