Health Xchange Protocol

SOAP specifications

You can find the complete documentation of the SOAP protocol here: http://www.w3.org/TR/soap12/ (Be warned: this is not as easy as the xml-rpc specs. Compared to SOAP, xml-rpc specs sheet is like that 2-pages menu in your local restaurant)

The main goal of HXP is the development of a "common language" in the form of standard procedure names compiled and published in a form of dictionary.

The underlying technology for the transport and messaging protocol takes a secondary status in the HXP development. We are not going to develop such protocols ourselves. We will use the most suitable technology available, and if needed we might encapsulate several protocols inside an abstraction module.
