Hi,

My question is:
Is rpc/encoded model is a web service standard? Also, what where I can see the latest web services standard?

Thanks.

Bye,
Viki.

Rpc/Encoded is a relatively old standard as to how soap envelopes should be formatted.

It is recommended to use document/literal which is much more interoperable.

The "encoded" encoding style of a WSDL binding has been disallowed since the WS-I Basic Profile 1.0 - only "literal" is allowed.

5.6.4 Encodings and the use Attribute
The Profile prohibits the use of encodings, including the SOAP encoding.

R2706 A wsdl:binding in a DESCRIPTION MUST use the value of "literal" for the use attribute in all soapbind:body, soapbind:fault, soapbind:header and soapbind:headerfault elements



Google for terms like

SOAP 1.1
SOAP 1.2
WSDL 1.1
WSDL 2.0
WS-Policy
WS-Security
WS-Addressing
WS-AtomicTransaction
WS-Attachments
WS-BPEL
WS-BusinessActivity
WS-CDL
WS-Coordination
WS-Eventing
WS-Federation
WS-I
WS-MetadataExchange
WS-Notification
WS-Referral
WS-ReliableMessaging
WS-Reliability
WS-Resource
WS-SecureConversation
WS-SecurityPolicy

Just because there is a standard doesn't mean that there is, or ever will be, (widespread) technical support for it.

Happy Holidays,
