    hello guru,

    HTTP is just the application layer protocol used by the SOAP. SMTP is the other

    one however HTTP gained the most popularity. SOAP enables you to exchange

    messages in XML and is defined by the SOAP schema. the HTTP body is where

    the SOAP message (Envelope) is being contained. the HTTP header defines the

    HTTP specific header values just like content-type which for SOAP case is xml.

    >i am getting confusion that how soap will work with http ?

    just think of SOAP as the grammar of the message being exchanged and HTTP

    or SMTP as the medium or channel.

    hope this helps.

    regards

    They are two different layers. The http is communication layer while SOAP is a message format for web services. They are not necessary bount together but http is the most popular protocal used by web services. Of couse they are other protocals for web services such as SMTP, MQ,etc.
