please clarify my doubt.
a SOAP message is an xml document right?

SOAP is a protocol?

SOAP based xml is a protocol to transmition data in network hence the problem interoperability in Heterogeneous system can be solved.
this protocol is used in web service.web service is important technology that change the information technology.
soap comprise 3 portion.envelope, header and body.
web service use http protocol to send soap message form clinet to server and vice versa.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
