Hi..I have a question..

Does the statement bellow make sense ?

RPC X document
These terms imply that the RPC style should be used for RPC programming models and that the document style should be used for document or messaging programming models. That's not the case at all. THE STYLE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH A PROGRAMMING MODEL. It merely dictates how to translate a WSDL binding to a SOAP message. Nothing more. YOU CAN USE EITHER STYLE WITH ANY PROGRAMMING MODEL.

Please..let me know! Tks in advance!

Well, there is nothing stopping you from writing the following kinds of web services:
  • An RPC web service that has a parameter that is an XML document.
  • A Document web service which takes an XML document that mimics the XML sent in an RPC request.

  • Thus, I'd say: Yes, the statement makes sense.
    Note, however, that it does not mean the approaches are equivalent.
    Best wishes!
