WSDL2C, ADB & xsi:type based deserialization

                 Key: AXIS2C-1071
             Project: Axis2-C
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: core/addressing
            Reporter: Sam Meder

I have the problem of having to work with a wsdl interface the makes use of type extensions
and xsi:type. For example:

         <complexType name="VirtualHardware">
               <extension base="vim25:DynamicData">
                     <element name="numCPU" type="xsd:int" />
                     <element name="memoryMB" type="xsd:int" />
                     <element name="device" type="vim25:VirtualDevice" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"

where the VirtualDevice type is extended in various ways to reflect different kind of device

         <complexType name="VirtualController">
               <extension base="vim25:VirtualDevice">
                     <element name="busNumber" type="xsd:int" />
                     <element name="device" type="xsd:int" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"

The issue I am running into is that WSDL2C does not seem to support this kind of xsi:type
based type serialization/deserialization (which admittedly fits really poorly with a non-object
oriented language like C). You could probably make it work by storing type information in
the generated structs, combined with a type registry.

Any suggestions on workarounds other than using the XML model?
