Subject [jira] Updated: (AXIS-1308) Axis 1.2 beta and .NET 1.1: Problem with arrays
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2004 17:26:27 GMT

Andy Micone updated AXIS-1308:

    Attachment: cdx.wsdl

I'm using a WSDL but it wasn't generated from a .NET service, it was supplied to us as was
the .Net client that consumes it. WSDL2Java under Axis 1.1 generates server stubs that correctly
answer the .NET client. Debates about what is the correct implementation aside, I think I'm
in the same boat as a lot of users that just need to create services to be consumed by .NET
clients in the simplest way possible. 

I do have a suggestion, if you look below at my deploy.wsdd snippet you'll note that the serializer
and deserializer for array objects are explicitly defined. Why not have another serializer/deserializer
class to handle the case where you prefer the xsd types over the soap encoding types and then
put a switch on WSDL2Java supported by the ant task to write this into the deploy.wsdd for
you. I think that would fit the scenario that many users are in where the main reason we are
using Axis is to interoperate with other platforms and the bulk of our work should be on the
back-end processing and not the data we are pushing across the transom.
