JBI/SOA Tips: Do not use the SOAP action header for message routing purposes

I came across a comment on my blog about using SOAP action header to do message routing. Do not rely on SOAP action header for message routing purposes. The HTTP binding SOAP action is not available in the SOAP 1.2 specification and the WS-I basic profile deprecates it too. Send an empty action header string for interoperability purposes if you have to. Consider using WS-Addressing or better still an Enterprise Service Bus that can facilitate message routing in addition to providing various other capabilities out-of-the-box.
