Setting up a SOAP architecture solely using HTTP will require at least:
- JDK 1.2.x or greater
- An Apache SOAP implementation
- A servlet engine (e.g., Websphere, WebLogic, or Tomcat)
- A parser supporting XMLSchema
In our analysis, we set up an architecture using Apache SOAP 2.2, Tomcat 3.2.2, JDK 1.3, and Xerces 1.4.0.
Note that the installation documents for the SOAP service (located at http://xml.apache. org/soap/docs/index.html) recommend using the JavaMail API and JAF (Java Activation Framework).
