Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
SOAP Version 1.2 is a lightweight protocol intended for exchanging structured information in a decentralized, distributed environment. SOAP Version 1.2 Part 2: Adjuncts defines a set of adjuncts that may be used with SOAP Version 1.2 Part 1: Messaging Framework. This specification depends on SOAP Version 1.2 Part 1: Messaging Framework [SOAP Part 1].
SOAP Version 1.2 (SOAP) is a lightweight protocol intended for exchange of structured information in a decentralized, distributed environment. The SOAP specification consists of three parts. Part 2 (this document) defines a set of adjuncts that MAY be used with the SOAP messaging framework:
1.The SOAP Data Model represents application-defined data structures and values as a directed, edge-labeled graph of nodes (see 2. SOAP Data Model).
2.The SOAP Encoding defines a set of rules for encoding instances of data that conform to the SOAP Data Model for inclusion in SOAP messages (see 3. SOAP Encoding).
3.The SOAP RPC Representation defines a convention for how to use the SOAP Data Model for representing RPC calls and responses (see 4. SOAP RPC Representation).
4.The section for describing features and bindings defines a convention for describing features and binding in terms of properties and property values (see 5. A Convention for Describing Features and Bindings).
5.The section on SOAP-Supplied Message Exchange Patterns and Features defines a request response message exchange pattern and a message exchange pattern supporting non-SOAP requests for SOAP responses, (see 6. SOAP-Supplied Message Exchange Patterns and Features).
6.The SOAP Web Method feature defines a feature for control of methods used on the World Wide Web (see 6.4 SOAP Web Method Feature).
7.The SOAP HTTP Binding defines a binding of SOAP to HTTP (see [RFC 2616]) following the rules of the SOAP Protocol Binding Framework, [SOAP Part 1] (see 7. SOAP HTTP Binding).
SOAP 1.2 Part 0 [SOAP Part 0] is a non-normative document intended to provide an easily understandable tutorial on the features of the SOAP Version 1.2 specifications.
SOAP 1.2 Part 1 [SOAP Part 1] defines the SOAP messaging framework.
In previous versions of this specification the SOAP name was an acronym. This is no longer the case.
