Working with SOAP Sessions

Native XML Web Services in SQL Server 2005 enables an instance of SQL Server 2005 to be accessed by Web service applications and to operate without the demands of the traditional network connection-based SQL service model. However, because SOAP-based access to SQL Server data over HTTP operates independently of connections, using SOAP sessions can provide an optional extension to HTTP SOAP-based clients for supporting multipart SQL batch processes.
