Subject Axis generated SOAP question.
Date Tue, 17 Sep 2002 19:56:46 GMT
Hi,

I noticed that the SOAP generated by Axis clients is 
different from what I expected. Whenever, the 
request/reply messages contain a complexType as a
parameter then the generated SOAP seems to use 
<multiRef> and the parameters are seems to be 
refer to the multiRef element using href. 

For example: look at the soap protocol exchanged in the 

samples/addr example is shown below. Is this 
expected behavior?

Is there a document/email-thread/spec. that 
explains why multiRefs elements are used instead of 
simply inlining the parameter elements? 


Thx. 

Harish
