soapAction in binding

I read soapAction attribute is optional in WSDL binding, which means it can be omitted or put empty value with double quotes "".
In this case do we must set soapAction in soapMessage? If yes how we can do it in header, assuming we are not using httpservlet as client.

For ex: Assume we omit soapAction from this snippet.
<x1:binding name="ServiceSoapBinding" type="x3:OfferMgmtServicePort">
<x4:binding style="document" transport="" />
<x1peration name="add">
<x4peration soapAction="add" style="document" />

Thanks in advance.

Usage of 'soapActrion' is not madatory. so you can omit it. It automatically places empty quote string to your HttP request if you omit it.
