Unlike plain HTTP connections, SOAP ones always except that a service intends to send XML.
Whether the connection can be used by services or not.
If a connection is not active a service will encounter a zato.common.Inactive exception when attempting to use it.
Note that an inactive connection still can be pinged.
|Host||HTTP server’s host, may include a port|

Pick ‘No security’ explicitly to indicate that no such definition should be used.
A connection can be pinged - this sends an HTTP HEAD request from one of a cluster’s servers to a location specified by the connection’s definition. This can be used to check whether a given resource is reachable by Zato servers.
The feature is available even if a connection is inactive.
