The Messaging Protocol: SOAP


SOAP is the protocol of Web services. It forms the basis of the way in which messages are sent. The SOAP protocol defines

  • An enveloping mechanism consisting of elements (in the SOAP namespace) within which any XML can be sent.

  • An extensibility hook for <Headers>, including targeting of those headers at specific actors, or intermediaries, as well as force errors if those headers are understood with the mustUnderstand attribute.

  • An RPC mechanism, as well as a data-encoding model.
