Subject WSDL Aware Runtime
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2002 18:52:39 GMT
I would appreciate some comments on the proposal to make the runtime 'wsdl

For example, if the following is recieved off the wire:


There is no way to determine how to deserialize the data because the type
attribute is not specified.
But if the runtime is 'wsdl aware' it could examine the wsdl and determine
the type of
<param> and do the proper deserialization.

Making the runtime 'wsdl aware' would also allow axis to check xml
instances coming over
the wire against the format described in the wsdl.  I suspect that other
non-axis runtimes may
already be doing this.

Making the runtime 'wsdl aware' would also eliminate the extra information
that is generated
in the skeleton classes.

The serializers/deserializers would need to be changed to traverse the
wsdl/xml during

Has anyone given this any thought?
