When and how will the message go to ANOTHER endpoint?
when does the mustUnderstand attribute in the header come into play?
I have only read it theoritically but I do not understand its actual meaning. Can it be ellaborated.
Thanks in advance, Milan Doshi

I think "endpoints" is not a proper term. It should use intermediates instead. These intermediates act just like network routers, forwarding the message till its final destnation.
The mustUnderstand attribute demands the message receiver have to know the meaning of the element and how to respond. Otherwise, stop processing the message further, thow an exception back to the originator.
