Subject Re: rpc vs. doc/literal interop
Date Fri, 10 Sep 2004 18:30:51 GMT
The issues are basically this:

1.  With rpc/enc there are many "valid" ways to say the same thing.  If 
the soap stacks you are interested in have implemented the same subset 
of these options your all set - kind of.

2.  With doc lit there is one way to serialize a message and its 
described completely by XML Schema so with less optionality there is a 
better chance of more toolktis getting it right.
