Just tried this little quiz and did quite well, got 2 questions wrong, one of which was the first one:

# What does SOAP define
A. The overall structure of the XML message
B. The conventions representing the remote procedure call in the XML message
C. A binding to HTTP
D. The conventions to wrap and send an error back to the seder
E. All of the above


The answer given is E "all of the above", although I would have said that 'C' wasn't true - in theory it could use FTP or whatever - isn't it the Basic Profile that binds SOAP to HTTP ?

Also I found my self getting a bit irritated with the spelling (e.g. seder instead of sender), I expect a better standard from a company I'm planning on paying to certify me. Oh well , my spelling is pretty bad sometimes

Nope, it's SOAP that defines the HTTP binding.

Also, note that with some of these questions it's important to watch out for linguistic detail. Saying that "SOAP does define a binding for HTTP" does not imply that other bindings couldn't be used. It doesn't even imply that SOAP doesn't also define bindings for protocols other than HTTP (although it doesn't).

Welcome to a twisted little maze of questions, all alike

Thanks Ulf.

I see section 6 of SOAP spec .

That makes sense now, I'll be glad when I don't need to worry about these details
