Re: query in xml
In SOAP, there is no concept of a "method" - with some restrictions, you can basically pass any XML as the SOAP body and add some metadata to the envelope's header. Possibly, you're talking about WSDL, which has a concept of an operation, so maybe you mean that you want to get by with a single WSDL interface (portType in 1.1) that has just one operation (or at least, a fixed set of operations). Even then, passing the XML as a string is a bad idea since you'd need to escape it. It's not great, but much better, to use an xsd:any. If you don't care for generating interface-specific code from a WSDL file anyway, you might want to consider forgetting about SOAP and WSDL and use plain HTTP in a RESTful manner instead.
