High level API vs. low level API?

What is the difference between high level API and low level API?
A high-level API allows the developer to work with WSDL. A WSDL compiler generates all of your SOAP interfaces, so as a programmer all you need to do is invoke methods on objects, and you never need to diretly manipulate the SOAP structures (the envelope, header, and body). A low-level API allows the developer to work directly with the SOAP structures. Rather than invoking methods on objects, you need to construct SOAP messages and call them.
