Subject Serializing anyType
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2002 15:05:25 GMT
For the client, I have turned off multirefs. The schema defines some
values as type xsd:anyType, but the client serializes the type as
xsd:anyType instead of its true type. Then the server returns a fault
being unable to deserialize anyType.

e.g.
   <options xsi:type="SOAP-ENC:Array"
SOAP-ENC:arrayType="ns1:Option[4]">
    <item xsi:type="ns1:Option">
     <name xsi:type="xsd:string">collapseWhiteSpace</name>
     <value xsi:type="xsd:anyType">true</value>
    </item>
    <item xsi:type="ns1:Option">
     <name xsi:type="xsd:string">customElement</name>
     <value
xsi:type="xsd:anyType">[Lcom.foo.ws.axis.CustomElement;@1e0c13</value>
    </item>
    ...

The workaround is to enable multirefs on the client
e.g.
   <options xsi:type="SOAP-ENC:Array"
SOAP-ENC:arrayType="ns1:Option[4]">
    ...
    <item href="#id4"/>
    <item href="#id5"/>
   </options>

  <multiRef id="id4" SOAP-ENC:root="0" xsi:type="ns7:Option"
xmlns:ns7="xxx">
   <name xsi:type="xsd:string">collapseWhiteSpace</name>
   <value href="#id11"/>
  </multiRef>
  <multiRef id="id11" SOAP-ENC:root="0"
xsi:type="xsd:boolean">true</multiRef>

  <multiRef id="id5" SOAP-ENC:root="0" xsi:type="ns4:Option"
xmlns:ns4="xxx">
   <name xsi:type="xsd:string">customElement</name>
   <value href="#id8"/>
  </multiRef>
  <multiRef id="id8" SOAP-ENC:root="0" xsi:type="SOAP-ENC:Array"
SOAP-ENC:arrayType="ns9:customElement[2]" xmlns:ns9="xxx">
   <item href="#id13"/>
   <item href="#id14"/>
  </multiRef>



I think this is a problem with Axis not serializing the correct instance
type. Multirefs (a la Axis) are very ugly when trying to debug your SOAP
calls!
