chemical equation for saponification of methyl salicylate in 6 M NaOH.

C8H8O3 + NaOH ---> C7H6O3Na + CH3OH + H2O

is this the right reaction?
is saponification like hydrolysis?
what is the hydrolysis of methyl salicylate in 6M HCL?

C8H8O3 + HCl ---> C7H6O3Cl + H2O

    Isn't saponification the reverse of hydrolysis? Note you are MAKING H2O in saponification, in hydrolysis you USE water.
