"soap:body" - Binding for SOAP Body

This section describes 'soap:body', a SOAP extension element that specifies how the SOAP Body should be constructed in the SOAP message for an operation input and output. 'literal' means no encoding.

"soap:body" is a SOAP extension element used as a sub element of the "wsdl:input" or "wsdl:output" element inside the "wsdl:binding" and "wsdl:operation" element structure. "soap:body" is used to provide information on how the content of the SOAP Body element is constructed. The syntax of "soap:body" looks like this:

<wsdl:definitions ...>
  <wsdl:binding ...>
    <wsdl:operation ...>
        <soap:body parts="nmtokens" use="literal|encoded"
          encodingStyle="uri-list" namespace="uri"/>
        <soap:body parts="nmtokens" use="literal|encoded"
          encodingStyle="uri-list" namespace="uri"/>

Notes on the "soap:body" element:

Here is an example of "soap:operation" element:

  <wsdl:binding name="helloBinding" type="hy:helloPortType">
    <soap:binding style="document"
    <wsdl:operation name="Hello">
      <wsdl:input name="helloInput">
        <soap:body use="literal"/>
      <wsdl:output name="helloOutput">
        <soap:body use="literal"/>
