1. Introduction

YAZ uses a very simple implementation of SOAP that only (currently) supports what is sufficient to offer SRU SOAP functionality. The implementation uses the tree API of libxml2 to encode and decode SOAP packages.

Like the Z39.50 ASN.1 module, the YAZ SRU implementation uses simple C structs to represent SOAP packages as well as HTTP packages.
