Subject Re: out and in/out parameters

The latest ?WSDL generation code should understand Holder classes.

Holder parameters are always converted into inout parts (not out only).

Rich, correct me if I'm wrong, but handling holders is on your todo list
for Java2WSDL, right?

Cedric, you're right, when we see a holder there is no way to distinguish
between out and inout.  Our bindings will probably treat it as inout.  If
it's really an out parameter, then it should still work because whatever
the client puts into the holder (or null) will be ignored and the server
will fill it in.

Subject:  out and in/out parameters


Out and Inout parameters are supported for axis soap clients but do not
to be supported for axis web services.

Moreover, JAXRPC 0.5 specifiation does not seem to be clear concerning 

Do you think out and inout parameters will be supported in the future ?

For ex :
public void add(IntHolder i1, int i2)
    i1._value = i1._value + i2

But if it is to be supported, I wonder how to distinguish from out and
in/out parameters (for the wsdl) ?
