The primary focus of the XML based messaging Protocol Working Group is to establish a framework for XML-based messaging systems. This framework encompasses the specification of a message envelope format and a method for data serialization. While the emphasis is on RPC applications, the framework adheres to the specified principles, catering not exclusively but primarily to RPC applications.
