The message style (rpc vs document) does not dictate the client programming
style. A number of SOAP implementations support WSDL-to-stub/proxy
generators for document-style messages.

  Subject: programming model for document-style SOAP



  Greetings,

  1st: I enjoy the currently interesting discussion in this group about REST
and whether prior knowledge resides in XML schemas and/or WSDL and all that
... I'm new to this so this is good stuff.

  2nd: Can you please advise me on the following: given one uses
document-style SOAP, what kind of programming model and tools would one
adopt? What are the current best practices?  (I guess use of document-style
SOAP will coincide with asynchronous invocation in many cases.)

  With RPC-style SOAP there are WSDL-to-stub generators and all that; I
guess a document-centric approach requires sg. different and less "brittle"
like perhaps callback handlers for certain (optinal) parts of SOAP
documents. I guess having each and every client/server do all the document
processing purely on the DOM level would not cut it.

  Thanks,
  Christian
