HTTP Binding Component Features

Features of the the HTTP/SOAP Binding Component include the following:

  • Supports the WSDL 1.1 and SOAP 1.1 specifications. Message exchanges to and from this binding component make use of the JBI WSDL 1.1 wrapper for the normalized message
  • Implements HTTP and SOAP binding as defined by the WSDL 1.1 specification
  • Follows WS-I 1.0 conventions and adds additional support for non-conforming components
  • Supports Document and Remote Procedure Call (RPC) style web services
  • Supports literal and encoded use
  • Supports the common convention of WSDL retrieval via <service uri>?wsdl
  • Uses XML Catalogs following the OASIS Committee Specification, which allows the component to resolve schemas locally without resorting to network access
  • Supports JBI service unit deployments to define the web services to provide or consume
  • Makes use of the WSDL extensibility (standard HTTP and SOAP extensions) to define external communication details for the web services to provision or consume
  • Supports Binding Component to Binding Component Connection, which allows direct HTTP Binding Component to HTTP Binding Component connections within a composite application
  • Enhanced Environment Variable Support
