WSA: Web-Service Addressing

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/08

I don’t do SOAP that often any more, so here some links on it and some notes on how one site used some of the fields:

A few observations from real life:

  • Inside the WS-Addressing realm:
    • Action has a URI indicating what to execute inside the service
    • From is basically abused because it
      1. is not used as a source endpoint but
      2. has an Address element that contains both Action and authentication
    • MessageID uses a uuid: based URI
  • Outside the WS-Addressing realm, in the main SOAP body:
    • Since is implemented using a non ISO-8601 compliant timestamp: it barfs on the second fraction and on the time zone (neither Z nor an offset based time-zone are accepted).

I did not know you could have uuid based URIs, as they are not mentioned here:

But apparently they have been in use for quite a while:
