Abstract

Applications using SOAP messages for communication purposes invoke one or several web-services and normally receive a return message for each call. In addition to this, our solution proposes that such applications automatically configure an embedded SOAP server on the operating system level so that a specified server can send an independent SOAP request to this application. The result is a generic framework for an ad-hoc automatic real-time bidirectional communication using/over SOAP messages. In this paper we also describe our concept of extending the functionality of today’s applications and operating systems in order to realize an adhoc automatic real-time bidirectional communication using SOAP via HTTP. Finally, we take a look at a concrete implementation of an application which uses SOAP in this customized way.
