xsi:type attribute should be generated for elements declared as xs:anyType when the actual
value is a simple type
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: AXIS2-4401
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2-4401
             Project: Axis 2.0 (Axis2)
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: adb
    Affects Versions: 1.5
            Reporter: Pétur Runólfsson
            Priority: Minor


Currently, the xsi:type attribute is only declared for complex types. This means that if a
method that returns xs:anyType returns an object of simple type (for example xs:string or
xs:date), the client gets no type information with the object. xsi:type attributes should
always be declared for return values for methods that have xs:anyType return types. The same
applies when a method returns a complex type that contains a xs:anyType property.

Example response when xs:string is returned:

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
   <soapenv:Body>
      <ns:getAnyResponse xmlns:ns="http://ws.apache.org/axis2">
         <ns:return>Hello</ns:return>
      </ns:getAnyResponse>
   </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>

Response from same method when a complex type is returned:

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
   <soapenv:Body>
      <ns:getAnyResponse xmlns:ns="http://ws.apache.org/axis2">
         <ns:return xsi:type="ax21:Value" xmlns:ax21="http://ws.apache.org/axis2/xsd" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
            <ax21:any xsi:nil="true"/>
         </ns:return>
      </ns:getAnyResponse>
   </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>
