Web services SOAP messaging styles
There are also two types of SOAP messaging styles commonly used in web services:
1. RPC-style, which is a simpler, less-capable messaging style generally used to send smaller messages and receive single variable answers. All of the administrative methods in Corticon Server's SOAP API use RPC-style messaging.
2. Document-style, which is more complex, but allows for richer content, both in request and response messages. The Corticon Server rule execution (execute) interface supports both document-style and RPC-style messaging.
Important: Any SOAP client or SOAP-capable application used to consume a Decision Service deployed to the Corticon Server typically uses document-style messaging. See the Integration & Deployment Guide for complete details on proper structure of a compliant request message.
