    For the applications i worked on, it's only client / server - request /
    response, one - one communication. But when i read SOAP specification, it
    may have many intermediaries between the web service client and server

    Here is my question -

    1 -- Does Aixs support intermediaries and what is intermediaries used for?

    2 -- Does use of intermediaries happen often in the real world industry?

    3 -- What are example of intermediaries and use of it?

    4 -- Are those intermediaries just another SOAP engine (e.g. axis) sit on
    aother Computer / Host?

    5 -- i also heard intermediaries modify the SOAP request / response too why
    they need to do so?

    6 -- i saw alot web service at www.xmethods.net they are all one - one -->
    request / response, did all the web services there ever use intermediaries?
    am i sending request to intermediaries or Ultimate soap receiver? Usually it
    will have 1 request, and then response XML when i click on "Try It" there.
