I definitely believe that there is a bug somewhere, though I will not
hazard a guess as to where the bug may be.

For context, take a look at
http://radio.weblogs.com/0101679/stories/2002/02/15/aBusyDevelopersGuideToWsdl11.html
 .  It took me quite a while to find a set of definitions which I could use
to progressively disclose some of the concepts behind WSDL.  The first
thing to note is that the set of definitions described there actually work
with the current WSDL4J and WSDL2Java code base, as demonstrated by the
test described in that same essay.

Now move the import statement from binding.wsdl to immediately before the
import statement in tutorial.wsdl.  The result will be a
java.lang.NullPointerException.  Not good.

What I would like to see is for us to work together to address this.  Three
questions:

(1) Which, if any, of the above two sets of WSDLs (before and after the
moving of the import statement) are valid according to the spec?

(2) Given the answer to (1) above, how should WSDL4J handle both cases?

(3) Given the answer to (2) above, how should WSDL2Java handle both cases?

If necessary, lets iterate through these three until we end up with an
answer to #3 which either produces the expected results or meaningful error
messages.

Thanks.
