I was really convinced it was a standard. Apparently not. The best I can find is a W3C recommendation (http://www.w3.org/Submission/SOAPJMS/). It seems it never made it to be a standard. Also in the JMS spec (http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=914), there is only mention of HTTP as transport for a SOAP binding.
A bit strange, WSIF has had this possibility for years (http://ws.apache.org/wsif/providers/wsdl_extensions/jms_extension.html).

Maybe creating standards is becoming more difficult? Too many parties involved? Too much at stake?

I have to admit that JMS remains limited to the java space. Maybe one day we will have SOAP/AMQP (http://www.amqp.org). I’m hoping on it.
