3 Protocol Details
The client side of this protocol is simply a pass-through. That is, no additional timers or other state is required on the client side of this protocol. Calls that are made by the higher-layer protocol or application are passed directly to the transport, and the results that are returned by the transport are passed directly to the higher-layer protocol or application.
This protocol allows protocol servers to notify protocol clients of application-level faults by using SOAP faults. Except where otherwise specified, these SOAP faults are not significant for interoperability and protocol clients can interpret them in an implementation-specific manner.
This protocol allows protocol servers to perform implementation-specific authorization checks and to notify protocol clients of authorization faults by using either HTTP status codes or SOAP faults, as specified previously in this section.
