1 Introduction

The SOAP 1.1 One-way Binding (this document) defines modification to the SOAP 1.1 HTTP Binding [SOAP 1.1] to support sending a message without a SOAP response, aka a one-way message.

2 SOAP 1.1 One-way HTTP Binding

This SOAP 1.1 One-way HTTP binding can be used for sending one-way messages. For such messages, the HTTP [RFC 2616] response MUST be a 202 status code and an empty HTTP body, aka no SOAP envelope. Any SOAP Envelope that is a response MUST be sent using a separate connection.
