Subject Re: WSDL syntax checker
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2002 17:21:15 GMT
Here's my 2 cents.

There are very few syntax checks within WSDL2Java.

The WSDL2Java emitter walks the model provided by WSDL4J to generate the
Therefore any syntax checking should be done in WSDL4J not within the
WSDL2Java emitter.
In addition, WSDL4J should provide a better way of modeling the xml schema
type section so
that the WSDL2Java emitter could more easily walk the types.

So since the WSLD4J library produces the model, I would like to see syntax
checking and schema validation
within the WSDL4J library.  The emitter should be able to turn on/off

So even though I agree with Rick that checking is important..

-1 for this code to be added directly into the Axis emitters.

Rick, are there some syntax errors that you are particularly interested in?

I was wondering how difficult it would be to provide either a "syntax check
only" option to WSDL2Java utility or yet another utility that would reuse
99% of the functionality that is in WSDL2Java to just syntax check  WSDL.
Ideally validating any referenced schema too.  I'm "assuming" that this
utiity  is already providing a reasonable amount of checking prior to
generation stage.  I know your going to ask why not then just delete the
generated code.  And the only answer I have is convenience :-)
