Subject Re: AXIS/SOAP Interop Test Summary
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2002 18:11:42 GMT
The 4s4c 2.0 echoStructArray return does does not contain enough type
information for Axis to
understand how to deserialize the array.

The returned format has xsi:type=soapenc:Array and
and the elements of the array do not have xsi:type attributes.

Possible Solution:
For non-array types without xsi:type information, the expected return type
is consulted to
determine how to deserialize the object. (RPCHandler)

In this case we, have an xsi:type=soapenc:Array, but still not enough
information to deserialize
the array.  Should we change RPCHandler to recognize this case and consult
the return type?  (Which in this case will be ArrayOfSOAPStruct which maps
to SOAPStruct[])

Summary of Proposed Solution:
If the xsi:type=soapenc:Array and the soapenc:arrayType is too generic
(i.e. xsd:anyType),
then use the type information of the Return type.

Also there are more SOAP structArray problems.  Without the wire dumps
its hard to tell what is going on, but I suspect that SOAP is now sending
the arrays across with a type=ArrayOfSOAPStruct instead of
SOAP may need to apply the same fix that I did to the array serializer to
force type=soapenc:Array.
