I was really convinced it was a standard. Apparently not. The best I can find is a W3C recommendation ( It seems it never made it to be a standard. Also in the JMS spec (, there is only mention of HTTP as transport for a SOAP binding.
A bit strange, WSIF has had this possibility for years (

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 ( I’m hoping on it.
