Subject RE: <wsdl:documentation> support?
Date Sat, 13 Apr 2002 14:35:44 GMT
As an alternative to this approach, couldn't you use something like CapeClear's WSDL editor
which is capable of generating stub implementations of a Web service? Then you get WSDL and
Web service separation. IMHO, it's a bad idea to rely on auto-generated WSDL. Because WSDL
defines the interface contract, it should not be easy to change. 
Such a tool should be trivial to write.

	  I'm not familiar with how Axis parses .jws's, but wouldn't that be
	possible since it's uncompiled?  Admittedly, allowing this would be a fairly
	ugly behavioral quirk in the API.  I'd love to be able to just setup the
	Deployment Descriptor with the Java/Javadoc path and have it work though.
	Keep it in mind at least. ;)

	Taking javadoc comments and putting them into WSDL would really be nice.
	But it's not easy.  Java2WSDL works from .class files.  Javadoc comments
	aren't in .class files.  So Java2WSDL would have to know where to find the
	javadocs (or the .java files) and be able to parse them.  It's not a
	trivial task, so don't expect it any time soon.

	  Does Axis have anyway to support these documentation elements from the
	WSDL 1.1 spec?
	  I want to be able to leave comments in my classes such that when the wsdl
	is created, these notes will be added for the client's benefit.
	  Axis is quite nice in that client stub generation from a WSDL takes these
	comments and inserts them as real comments into the Java code.  Handy.
