SOAP Envelope

The SOAP Envelope element is the root element in a SOAP message. Inside the SOAP Envelope you find a Header (optional) and a Body element.

Here is a sample SOAP Envelope element (Envelope element marked in bold):

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<env:Envelope  xmlns:env="" >




Notice the env name space declaration inside the Envelope element:


This name space declaration must always be present in a SOAP Envelope element. The prefix (env) can change as you see fit.
