Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2C-461) If SOAP Action is missing in SOAP 1.1 request, it is assumed to be a REST call
Date Wed, 13 Dec 2006 17:41:23 GMT

Eran Chinthaka commented on AXIS2C-461:


If there is no SOAPAction and if the body contains a SOAP 1.1 message, it is not always wrong,
if you have enabled REST handling. Even though you have a SOAP message, you can not assume
that this should be a SOAP request.

For example, there can be a service, acting as a proxy to another Web service. When you access
this service, using a normal web service call, you send a SOAP message which has another SOAP
message in the body of the first SOAP message. Now what if, you gonna access the same service
using REST. Then you get the above scenario. 

So I don't think this is a bug.

Disclaimer : I am not that familiar with C code or Axis2/C. But I am commenting on this issue,
on my little knowledge on REST and SOAP.
