The problem is that the WSDL component model is not based on 
the XML Infoset. Its a pure, clean and simple component
model. I would prefer for org.apache.wsdl.* to be an honest,
straight rendering of that in Java. The actual impl can be
whatever but I'm most concerned about the interfaces.

There is a brewing proposal to re-do the WSDL 2.0 component
model as an extension of the Infoset. I'm strongly -1 on
that proposal so will be working hard to kill it :-). Of
course that doesn't mean it'll get killed but at least you
know where I'm coming from.

Chathura- you should join the WSDL WG mailing list and at least
lurk on that. Please consider pointing people to this code
when you feel its ready for a first read .. primarily the
org.apache.wsdl.* stuff.
