There are 2 ways to implement the proxy server:
1. Program the proxy server to understand the semantics of each SOAP application that
a client will access. This approach is not scalable - for each new SOAP application
the proxy server will need to be updated.
2. If all SOAP messages are written in RDF/DAML then it may be possible for the
proxy server to dynamically discover the resource/method being requested.
