Hi,
I read the information about SOAP at w3schools.com. Here is some of the stuff that I don't understand clearly. Could any of you explain me these concepts?
1. What is the "soap:actor" attribute in SOAP for? Does it have to go with <soap:Envelope> element or it can go with any element of soap?
2. What is the use for attribute "soap:encodingStyle"?
3. "SOAP messages must be encoded using XML".What does this mean?
4. Can "mustUnderstand" attribute go with any element or only with the elements inside the <soap:Header> element?
5. Could you give me an example where the <soap:Header> information would be useful in soap message processing?
6. Can a soap message have multiple "<soap:Body>" and "<soap:Header>" elements or only one per message.
Thanks
Shoba-

Shoba,
I read Professiopnal XML, Chapter24 (SOAP) and found it useful, I think your doubts will be solved after reading that chapter.
