SOAP (originally Simple Object Access Protocol) is a messaging protocol specification for exchanging structured information in the implementation of web services in computer networks Its purpose is to induce extensibility , neutrality and independence. The server.authorizeConnection method is called prior to the soap service method. As an example of what SOAP procedures can do, an application can send a SOAP request to a server that has web services enabled—such as a real-estate price database—with the parameters for a search.
Or you’ll shamelessly return HTTP 400 Bad Request” for all functional errors, and then invent your own clunky error format, with booleans, integer codes, slugs, and translated messages stuffed into an arbitrary payload. Then, use bracket notation instead (client’soap:method'()).
The Content-Type header for a SOAP request and response defines the MIME type for the message and the character encoding (optional) used for the XML body of the request or response. Note: All immediate child elements of the Header element must be namespace-qualified.
Request – Emitted for every received messages. There are significant differences between SOAP and RESTful web services. The SOAP actor attribute is used to address the Header element to a specific endpoint. SuppressStack: suppress the full stack trace for error messages.
One of SOAP’s values is a guarantee that transactions are atomic: either the entire transaction completes successfully, or, if an error occurs, it is rolled back or restored entirely, so that the system’s state is always consistent. The Content-Length header for a SOAP request and response specifies the number of bytes in the body of the request or response.
