Subject Re: WSDL awareness
Date Mon, 26 Feb 2001 12:42:34 GMT
The requirements doc for Axis stated:
9.1  The service description should not be required (for instance, WSDL)

The WSDD schema that James and I committed last week has an optional
serviceDescription element that can refer to a WSDL document (or other
service description means for that matter.

At deployment time on the provider side, I can see some use for WSDL.
However much of the deployment information is modelled in WSDD elements,
because of requirement 9.1.

Do you see a role for WSDL processing at service invocation time?

Subject:  WSDL awareness

Hi Axisers (or is it Axiiers),

I don't recall seeing much discussion about WSDL awareness of the SOAP
engine. What's the current design ref being aware of the service
description when processing the message? It seems to me that that needs
to be taken into considering very early (I mean not just within a
specific handler like the RPC router).
