Re: Does SOAP have IDL

From reading the spec I don't see that SOAP has IDL (CORBA speak here).

No.  Higher-level systems can provide that.  WSDL [1], the Web Services
Description Language (which supports XML Schema as a type language) is
the most notable example.  WSDL, like SOAP, is a W3C Note; unlike SOAP
it has no Activity yet.
