About SOAP message elements
The Actuate Information Delivery API uses the standard SOAP message structure. A message consists of an HTTP header followed by a SOAP envelope, header, and body. The SOAP envelope wraps the header and body elements. The HTTP header encloses the entire message, which goes over the web to a server that can accept SOAP messages.
