The document/literal wrapped and rpc/literal SOAP styles (recommended by WS-I) both require the SOAP request message with single soap:body element. The element corresponds to the service operation. The operation arguments are that element children. The difference between the two is that with rpc/literal only the arguments are described by WSDL Type Schema while in doc/lit the whole soap:body content is described by WSDL Types Schema. On the wire those SOAP messages can look the exactly the same assuming the namespaces in the WSDL operation and WSDL Types are the same. emil
