Hi, how would I go about creating XML files that don’t include any soap content? Basically to sum it up – I want my XML files to look like any other xml file without the s:body / envelope and any other of those tags.

Is that even possible? I have been looking for the answer for a rather long time and I just can’t seem to find the solution.. 🙁
