/**
 * <P>The container for the SOAP-specific portion of a <CODE>
 * SOAPMessage</CODE> object. All messages are required to have a
 * SOAP part, so when a <CODE>SOAPMessage</CODE> object is
 * created, it will automatically have a <CODE>SOAPPart</CODE>
 * object.</P>
 *
 * <P>A <CODE>SOAPPart</CODE> object is a MIME part and has the
 * MIME headers Content-Id, Content-Location, and Content-Type.
 * Because the value of Content-Type must be "text/xml", a <CODE>
 * SOAPPart</CODE> object automatically has a MIME header of
 * Content-Type with its value set to "text/xml". The value must
 * be "text/xml" because content in the SOAP part of a message
 * must be in XML format. Content that is not of type "text/xml"
 * must be in an <CODE>AttachmentPart</CODE> object rather than in
 * the <CODE>SOAPPart</CODE> object.</P>
 *
 * <P>When a message is sent, its SOAP part must have the MIME
 * header Content-Type set to "text/xml". Or, from the other
 * perspective, the SOAP part of any message that is received must
 * have the MIME header Content-Type with a value of
 * "text/xml".</P>
 *
 * <P>A client can access the <CODE>SOAPPart</CODE> object of a
 * <CODE>SOAPMessage</CODE> object by calling the method <CODE>
 * SOAPMessage.getSOAPPart</CODE>. The following line of code, in
 * which <CODE>message</CODE> is a <CODE>SOAPMessage</CODE>
 * object, retrieves the SOAP part of a message.</P>
 * <PRE>
 * SOAPPart soapPart = message.getSOAPPart();
 * </PRE>
 *
 * <P>A <CODE>SOAPPart</CODE> object contains a <CODE>
 * SOAPEnvelope</CODE> object, which in turn contains a <CODE>
 * SOAPBody</CODE> object and a <CODE>SOAPHeader</CODE> object.
 * The <CODE>SOAPPart</CODE> method <CODE>getEnvelope</CODE> can
 * be used to retrieve the <CODE>SOAPEnvelope</CODE> object.</P>
