In page 94, the book says:


Although application specific elements in the Body element must be qualified by prefixes, there is no such requirement for the elements contained within a header element.





What does the author mean by "application specific elements"?

thanks.

<soap:Body> as well <soap:Header> both contain inside them application specific elements (header part is optional).

Elements within <soap:Body> carry SOAP message payload: XML document, or remote procedure call (in XML form)

Elements within <soap:Header> are for authentication/transactions/logging/ etc. They don't carry business object information.
