Hi Eran!

Hm.  Quick question here - I think there is (or at least should be) a 
difference between a Module being "engaged" and "required", right?  I'm 
pretty sure we had this discussion before, but the way I think this 
works is as follows:

CHOICE 1 : Addressing engaged, "required" flag set false

In this case the addressing handlers are deployed, and if someone sends 
us addressing headers, we'll respond with addressing headers.  When 
sending as a client, we'll use addressing on a per-message basis as 
determined by whether the client has set the correct properties.  When 
generating WSDL for a service that's been configured like this, we 
should see "wsa:UsingAddressing" without the wsdl:required attribute. 
In this configuration, we should NOT throw a fault if we receive a 
message without addressing headers (unless we're on the client side and 
we sent a request with addressing headers).

CHOICE 2 : Addressing engaged, "required" flag set true

This is like the last case except that we DO require addressing in all 
received messages - therefore we should throw a fault any time we don't 
see the addressing headers.

CHOICE 3 : Addressing not engaged

Nothing happens.


Does this sound right?  The "required" flag above is a property in the 
addressing module's context/configuration.
