WS-Addressing with the SOAPReply node

Various options are available when you use WS-Addressing with the SOAPReply node.

The SOAPReply node uses WS-Addressing if WS-Addressing is engaged on the SOAPInput node that is referenced by the reply identifier of the message entering the reply node.

The SOAPReply node uses addressing information in the Destination.SOAP.Reply.WSA folder of the local environment to determine where to send the reply and with what Message Addressing Properties (MAPs).

If the Destination.SOAP.Reply.WSA does not exist, or is completely empty when inspected by the SOAPReply node, the node uses the default addressing headers that were part of the incoming message. Therefore, you do not have to propagate the local environment in the default case, and addressing still works as expected.

In the case where folders exist beneath the Reply.WSA folder, these folders are used to update the output message. Therefore, you can change, add, or remove parts of the default reply information generated by the input node, because any changes that you made to the tree are reflected in the outgoing message by the SOAPReply node. For details about WS-Addressing information in the local environment, see WS-Addressing information in the local environment.

If WS-Addressing is not engaged, this node does not perform any WS-Addressing processing.
