Hi, Hugo!
These are great intentions - I still need to go through all these
In the document [4] I saw question about developing SOAP validator.
There is one already,
http://www.soaptoolkit.com/soapvalidator/listener.asp   (service that
accepts POSTs with soap messages)

It will be updated to support soap v1.2 draft in the nearest future.

Thanks, Kirill.

Subject: List of testable assertions in the SOAP Version 1.2

In order to test features of the SOAP Version 1.2 specification to
meet the entrance criteria to the Proposed Recommendation status, I
have generated a list of testable assertions[1] found in the current
Working Draft[2].

The idea is that each of these assertions can be tested to prove that
each feature of the specification has been implemented. I haven't
thought through the proof of interoperability yet, but those tests
could probably be used for this too.

One of the next steps is to compare this set of assertions against the
existing tests designed by the SOAPBuilders community, see what they
cover and what can be reused.

I have written an outline of the next steps[4] and did a high level
analysis of the SOAPBuilders tests a few days ago at [3], but I will
need to have a closer look at that.

This is a pretty rough draft, but comments (on both the document and
the process) are welcome on xml-dist-app[5].
