This is an add-on for the Jade agent development framework which enables Jade platforms to communicate via SOAP messages instead of HTTP or IIOP. It uses Apache CXF for sending and receiving SOAP messages. The approach is pretty simple, it sends the ACL envelope and payload as two message parameters to the other Jade platform. There is no mapping of ACL envelope to SOAP headers, so SOAP headers remain free to be used as necessary by the hosting environment.
