Thank you for your response Noah. I had sent the question to 
www-ws-desc@w3.org <mailto:www-ws-desc@w3.org> but
the message had failed, any way I'll try again.

I still have a point.
Supposing a server provides a "TRAVEL RESERVATION" web service. Does the
server use the WSDL document of the "TRAVEL RESERVATION" service to send
 and receive SOAP messages? I mean does the server interpret the WSDL 
document of
the service provided by the server itself?
