This section describes the following:

A WSDL document in SOAP web services uses the XML Schema to define the structure, semantics and constraints of the messages sent between the sender and recipient. The XML Schema is a W3C standard.

There is a strong analogy between object-oriented programming and XML Schema. A type defined in XML Schema can be used to represent an instance of that type in an XML document. Therefore, the body of a SOAP message consists of a combination of such instances of an XML Schema type.
