Class SOAPConnection


public abstract class SOAPConnection
extends Object
A point-to-point connection that a client can use for sending messages directly to a remote party (represented by a URL, for instance).

A client can obtain a SOAPConnection object simply by calling the following static method.

      SOAPConnection con = SOAPConnection.newInstance();
A SOAPConnection object can be used to send messages directly to a URL following the request/response paradigm. That is, messages are sent using the method call, which sends the message and then waits until it gets a reply.
