    The Key property is the last part of the URI path to a SOAP endpoint. The SOAP endpoint in Federation Manager is the SOAP Receiver servlet. The URI to the SOAP Receiver uses the format protocol://host:port/deloy-uri/Liberty/key. If you define disco as the Key, the URI path to the SOAP endpoint for the corresponding Discovery Service would be protocol://host:port/amserver/Liberty/disco. Different service clients use different keys when connecting to the SOAP Receiver.


    The Class property specifies the name of the implemented Request Handler class for the particular web service. For example,

    SOAP Action

    SOAP Action can be used to indicate the intent of the SOAP HTTP request. The SOAP processor on the receiving system can use this information to determine the ultimate destination for the service. The value is a URI. No defined value indicates no intent.

    Note –

    SOAP places no restrictions on the format or specificity of the URI or that it is resolvable.
