The SOAP standard and WS BP 1.1 define the HTTP binding - but SOAP is not restricted to HTTP(S), is ist? In theory it would be SOAP 1.2 & BP 1.1 conform to use any other protocol (e.g. SMTP) - right?

I find that the specs are not entirely clear on that issue - maybe you guys know the details - Many thanks in advance!!

You're right, SOAP is not restricted to HTTP. SMTP, messaging and TCP/IP are some of the other SOAP communication channels I've seen; HTTP probably makes up 99% of all SOAP use, though.

Hi Allexicus !

I suggest you carefully read a question, and if it mentions something like "according to WS-I BP", or "interoperable", or "Basic Profile", then you choose only HTTP binding.

SCDJWS 5.0 test contains many questions related to WS-I BP 1.1. So, even if it's possible to use other bindings, like SMTP, FTP, etc. from WS-I BP point of view, only HTTP binding is allowed.
