   RE: [xml-dev] xml messaging architecture and SOAP

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I’m not sure what you mean by XML messaging architecture, but the main difference between SOAP and an integration architecture is that SOAP has nothing to say about either the semantics of the message or about the actual headers to use in the envelope. To create an integration architecture you need to do both in addition to creating well-defined interfaces described by WSDL. Typically, message semantics are managed by having canonical forms of the message with mappings to and from them (these could be in XSLT if your messages are XML). Message headers need to enable envelope based routing, message integrity, correlation of requests and replies, and security. Finally, if your transport does not offer guaranteed delivery, you need to add headers to ensure once only delivery (as well as writing the code to do it).

Subject: [xml-dev] xml messaging architecture and SOAP


Hello Everybody,

I am particularly new working in xml. I would like to know the difference between xml messaging architecture and SOAP technology.

Which one suits which kind of solution, advantages and disadvantages, requirements, etc. The aim of using xml in our organisation is related to EAI, webservices in particular,  and also for enhancing the current sun's pet store like architecture, having refelections technology which we use for soultion development. So information about any xml related utilities for the latter purpose also welcome.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanx in advance.
