Usage

Call this function within a CFC to determine if it is running as a web service.

Example

This example creates a CFC web service that illustrates the operation of the IsSOAPRequest function and also provides a web service that illustrates the operation of other ColdFusion SOAP functions. Save the following code as headerservice.cfc in a folder called soapheaders under your web root. Test its operation, and specifically the operation of the IsSOAPRequest function, by executing the examples that invoke this web service. For example, see the example for AddSOAPRequestHeader.
