Subject Proposal to use content-type to determine inbound SOAP version
Date Fri, 09 Feb 2007 02:18:23 GMT

Currently (hardcoded):
    inbound soap version   <----- set to soap version of the outbound

Proposal (dynamic):
    inbound soap version <------- set according to the content-type of the
inbound message

This change is necessary because a SOAP 1.2 node may respond with a SOAP
1.1 fault message.
Thus a SOAP 1.2 client must be able to receive either a SOAP 1.2 message or
SOAP 1.1. (fault).

Mike and I don't believe that this is a controversal change, but we wanted
to bring this to your attention.
