Abstract

   This memo specifies a Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) binding to
   the Blocks Extensible Exchange Protocol (BEEP) core.  A SOAP binding
   describes how SOAP messages are transmitted in the network.

   The SOAP is an XML-based (eXtensible Markup Language) messaging
   protocol used to implement a wide variety of distributed messaging
   models.  It defines a message format and describes a variety of
   message patterns, including, but not limited to, Remote Procedure
   Calling (RPC), asynchronous event notification, unacknowledged
   messages, and forwarding via SOAP intermediaries.
