SOAP Distributed Processing Model

This section describes the SOAP processing model - SOAP messages are distributed from one node to another node.

The SOAP processing model is a distributed processing model, where a SOAP message originated at an SOAP initial node is sent to an ultimate SOAP node via zero or more SOAP intermediate nodes. The processing responsibilities are distributed on the intermediate nodes and the ultimate node.

The SOAP processing model is very open, with only a small number of rules:

In case of relaying a SOAP message, a SOAP intermediate node must follow these rules:

Of course, SOAP extended features can specify additional processing rules.
