SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol)


SOAP is the widely used web service access protocol that Microsoft is developing

PROS

SOAP specifies a protocol-based standard communication for XML message exchange using other communication transport protocol such as HTTP(Hypertext transfer protocol) and SMTP(Simple mail transfer protocol). SOAP is applied to the enterprise level web service that requires a complex level transaction—for example, API for financial services, identity management, payment gateway and other telecommunication.

CONS

SOAP can be a little complicated for beginners, especially debugging web services. SOAP required high bandwidth and more number of resources which might turn the page speed quite low.

REST (Representation state transfer)

REST API is being come in light to overcome the constraint that is with the SOAP. REST is not a protocol, but it is the service architectural style. It defines the set of recommendation for a loosely coupled application that uses HTTP for data transmission.

PROS

REST API is known for its flexible architecture that allows various other messaging formats such as HTML, XML, JSON and many more. REST is quite a lightweight API in comparison to SOAP and capable of loading page in few seconds

CONS

For accessing data using REST, use multiple round trips to collect the data.
REST request always return the full set of data, and there is no way to limit to access data

GraphQL (Representation state transfer)

GraphQL is new in the API section, and it allows you to think a new way about the Magento API. GraphQL is an API design architecture but comes in the market with a different approach, and it is more flexible in comparing to others. Conclusively, it is clear that GraphQL can solve the array of weaknesses faced with the REST API.

PROS

In GraphQL, everything is regarded as a graph, and all the graphs are interconnected with each other, which means you can request the specific need, which is not possible with the REST. You are also free to specify the limit for the response data you require to process the request

CONS

GraphQL is not well suited with other APIs, and another limitation is the built-in caching report.
As you see that GraphQL has replaced the SOAP and REST, but it makes things a little bit complex, and this is the reason GraphQL has attained the top position in performance wise among other API
