I have a two-part question on XML transport.

1. If two application vendor want to transfer XML documents to each other, is
there a standard transport that is used?  When I say transport, I mean web
server communication using http protocol, etc.

2. If web server is the transport, how do most vendors handle the
authentication with the web server?  Do they write their own client to
authenticate with the web server or are there software available for that?
