The SOAP over WebSocket Protocol Binding Specification defines a binding of SOAP to the WebSocket protocol (as defined in [RFC6455]), including a WSDL transport URI and supported message exchange patterns (MEPs). This specification also defines a WebSocket subprotocol.
Note This specification does not define any SOAP messages. Rather, it specifies how messages defined by a higher-layer protocol are formed and framed for transport over [RFC6455].
Sections 1.8, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but cannot contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
