   Re: [xml-dev] What does SOAP really add?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The HTTP 1.1 spec sanctions the use of POST instead of GET for form
submission, presumably in cases where GET would otherwise be correct from
the standpoint of side-effect semantics, in order to keep the parameter
block from being logged with the URI.  See 15.1.3.
