Send Part of an XForms Instance to a Web Service


Include your SOAP request within a general instance document: This intermediate level article by Nicholas Chase explains how an XForms form is handy as a Web service client because it enables you to easily send and receive an XML document, but what if you don't necessarily want to send the entire data instance? This tip explains how you can build an instance that includes a SOAP message along with other data, and then send only the SOAP message on submission.
