taylor coreySubject: Doc/Literal and SOAP Header/Body
Author: taylor corey
Date: 04 Jan 2008 12:57 PM
I was reading 'Building Web Services with Java' and the book seems to indicate that if the WSDL file indicates Doc/Literal then the parameters should go in the SOAP body and not the header. In fact, it says the SOAP header should be empty.

Is this generally accepted practice?

Thanks.

Hi Taylor,
the SOAP header should be used to carry only application-specific informations, and not data. Data needed to perform the web service operation should only be located in the SOAP body; the header should be used to specify authentication tokens, or transaction semantics.
The web server could either use those informations or discard them (unless the "soap:mustUnderstand" attribute is specified).

Hope this helps,
Alberto
