For example, a role “none” means that no node will process the SOAP header in any way and simply transmit the message along its path.
Nor is it tied to any particular operating system or programming language so theoretically the clients and servers in these dialogues can be running on any platform and written in any language as long as they can formulate and understand SOAP messages.
