Can any one tell the significance of the encodingStyle attribute where we give the valuehttp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/.
From all that i know this url must contain an xml doc that contains the rules to marshall the soap request the soap xml.
Though I stated the above i am still not able to concieve what that means when it is brought to the level of reality.
For Ex.
In the wsdl file i define a type as
<xsd:complexType name="phone">
<xsd:all>
<xsd:element name="areaCode" type="xsd:int"/>
<xsd:element name="exchange" type="xsd:string"/>
<xsd:element name="number" type="xsd:string"/>
</xsd:all>
</xsd:complexType>
assuming that phone is the only part of my input message , in the binding i specify
<input>
<soap:body use="encoded"
namespace="urn:AddressFetcher"
encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"/>
</input>
for the message.
What is the significance of this encoding when i have already expressed my input type as XML.
I have made an earnest effort the articulate my issue.Pl lemme know if it is still not clear
thanx in advance

Encoding Style means that the serialization adheres to SOAP default Section 5 encoding style.
Please refer the SAOP 1.1 specification section 5.
You may alternatively use any other encoding style such as XMI from OMG.
