CSW ISO test fails on Post/SOAP tests but the GetCapabilities only advertise Post/XML
After running the CSW ISO test suite on our server I got several failures related to SOAP encoding.
However, our server's capabilities only expose XML Post encoding:
As far as I understand the CSW 2.0.2 and CSW ISO specs, this is sufficient:
"If the connect point URL is the same for all SOAP-encoded and base-XML operation requests, the ows:Constraint element shall be included in the ows:OperationsMetadata element. If the connect point URL is different for SOAP-encoded and base-XML operation requests, this ows:Constraint element shall be included in each ows:Post element."
Could it be that your test only checks the PostEncoding constraint in individual operations and not the OperationsMetadata as a whole?
