Subject Re: Apache SOAP and request only Web Services.
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2002 04:46:59 GMT
Apache SOAP does not currently implement something equivalent the
one-way ports specified in WSDL
(  I am not certain what
specification says how to implement this on HTTP.  Microsoft has the
server respond with an empty (no entity) HTTP response with some magic
status like "216 Received" after the SOAP request is validated, but
before the service is actually executed.  I would like to have this in
Apache SOAP, but have not yet had time to add it.

The current Apache SOAP code (1) always executes the service before
transmitting an HTTP response and (2) always transmits a SOAP envelope
as the HTTP entity.  The closest thing to one-way operations is any
service with a void return type.
