STAR supports two styles of WSDL.
Generic Transport - This transport can handle any type of payload. It is up to the implementer to determine the type of payload being sent and received and act accordingly. One end point is used to process all transport requests.
BOD Specific- This transport follows in line with the more traditional web service, as it expects a specific type of payload to be sent and a specific type to be returned. Multiple end points are needed to handle different types of BODS.
The type selected will depend on the requirements of the implementer. Some may choose to implement one or the other, and some may choose to implement both. A generic outfacing transport and possibly an internal BOD Specific transport to handle internal communications.
