What is a payload in SOAP?

The payload is the actual message content that you want to send to the other application. For example, here's a typical "hello world" SOAP message (using document/literal encoding):
<e:Envelope xmlns:e="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
<e:Body
xmlns:t="http://my.example.com/xsd/types/"
xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:d="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<t:In i:type="d:string">
Hello world!
</t:In>

</e:Body>
</e:Envelope>


The data in blue is the message payload.
