in the saaj portion of the coffee break application, why do they use saaj/soap instead of xml over http without the structure of soap? for example, using jdom and an httpurlconnection to send over the xml documents?

Probably to show us how to use the SAAJ API...

beyond being a tutorial on saaj, is there a good reason to use soap in that example?
