Subject RE: Problem with the namespace prefix in Axis
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2007 16:53:21 GMT
No, namespace prefixes are not significant in SOAP messages.  They are
just a shorthand.

Axis doesn't preserve them in any way (nor do most other toolkits that I
am aware of).

Subject: Re: Problem with the namespace prefix in Axis


Hi All,


Has anyone never faced this problem before? 

I debugged the Axis 1.4 code and found that during serialization of the

received, (Client respone handler), the URIs are mapped to default
namespace prefix values and the original prefixes received with the
mesages are ignored. 

Is there a way to get around this and make Axis use the same prefixes as
recevied? Can I set some prameter in my client-config.wsdd to disable

I have already tried the "enableNamespacePrefixOptimization" property
but it too does not work?


Please help me.. Its really very urgent.


Thanks & regards,
