Greetings, if you take a look at the XForms 1.1 Requirements [1] you will 
see that there is an item to provide explicit support for SOAP. You should 
expect it to cater for both SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2.

This article was interesting but raised a few questions in my head. First
I notice that IBM use the FormsPlayer's text-xml-post so they can talk to
the SOAP server using text/xml. Most XForms applications won't have this
obviously. 

With SOAP 1.2 the type application/soap+xml is the expected MIME type,
does this mean that XForms won't be able to talk to the SOAP server? That
would be a shame given how well they could be used together.

Thanks,

Gary
