Subject [Axis2] RE: Reference Parameters resolution
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2005 04:21:50 GMT
Hi Ian and all,


Thanks for the comment. 


I've already implemented WSA Submission and Final versions for Axis2 on top
of AXIOM. I also think that we need a WS-FX implementation on this. I
*prefer* to have something which is not dependant on DOM.


Please have a look at the impls in Axis2 and will be happy to contribute to
implement WSA to WS-FX.

Hi Eran,


I'm not a member of the WSA working group, but I think I can answer your
question. Any headers in the SOAP request that have a wsa:Type="parameter"
attribute correspond to reference parameters from the EPR from which the WSA
headers were derived. Reference parameters are xs:anys and so would be
represented using DOM Elements, SAAJ SOAPElements, or some other generic
representation of XML elements. If you wanted to be agnostic to any
particular binding technology, you'd have to represent the the
ReferenceParameters as java.lang.Objects. 


Fyi, I'm planning on rewriting the WS-FX Addressing impl in the August
timeframe to be SOAP platform neutral, to transparently support multiple
versions of WSA, and to closely follow the APIs being drafted by JSR261. I'm
sure you probably need something for Axis2 before then, but I hope in August
we can discuss Axis2 leveraging and contributing to the WS-FX
implementation, so we don't have redundant implementations. I am even
thinking that the generic WSA impl could be moved into the new ws-commons

I'm implementing WS-Addressing 1.0 for Apache Axis2. I got this question
when I'm implementing that. I greatly appreciate if some one can help me
with the following question.


<S:Envelope xmlns:S=""






<fabrikam:CustomerKey wsa:Type='parameter'>123456789</fabrikam:CustomerKey>

<fabrikam:ShoppingCart wsa:Type='parameter'>ABCDEFG</fabrikam:ShoppingCart>









In short how do I know which reference parameter relates to which addressing
property ?


I know that reference parameters are meant to be parameters for the web
services engine. But when I'm receiving a SOAP message I have to assign the
received parameters to one of the addressing headers. Is there a method
proposed in WS-Addressing specification ?


Thanks and Regards,

Eran Chinthaka
