What is the difference between <soap peration style="document"/> and
<soap peration soapAction=""/> entires in WSDL?

The first one is refering to the WSDL binding sytle. Your example means you want to use "document/literal".

Soap Action is something you use to set your headers. Not sure what setting it to nothing does.

Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.

A blank SOAPAction attribute means that the intent of the message must be infered from the URL.

I agree. Here's the link:
