In this chapter, we discussed SOAP internals as they apply to .NET Remoting applications. Using this understanding of SOAP, we examined several message flows between the JobClient and JobServer applications. Although the .NET Framework does a great job of hiding the SOAP details from programmers performing higher-level tasks, understanding SOAP can give you a powerful tool for developing .NET Remoting applications. By watching SOAP traffic, you can see how the .NET Remoting infrastructure sends messages for constructing objects and renewing leases as well as viewing your own method-based messages on the wire. Because you now have a basic understanding of SOAP, we ll use SOAP message flows in this book to reinforce concepts as appropriate.
