SOAP with Attachments

, Mar 29, 2003

This document proposes a set of concrete idioms and conventions that clarify the processing model of SOAP Messages with Attachments, yielding the following enhancements: * Alignment with the XML Infoset-based data model and the SOAP processing model ￐ opaque data may be correctly processed by intermediaries and may be secured* Backwards-compatible message syntax ￐ every message conforming to this proposal is a legal SwA/1.0 message* Alternate message syntax for SOAP processors that have no knowledge of SwA or this proposal ￐ message content can be faithfully serialized in a form that is understandable by SOAP processors that do not comply with this specification
