Subject RE: Format/Structure of req./res. soap msg.
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2005 13:32:41 GMT
Seems like a little of both.
 the de/serializers themselves determine the actual XML. 
 But the schema definition in the WSDL is the "contract" which the
de/serializer is bound to uphold. 

If the xml generated or consumed by your custom de/serializers does not
comply with the schema in the WSDL, then something is wrong. 

Please all, correct me if I am mistaken about this, but 
I think the idea behind custom de/serializer is to enable mapping of any
arbitrary XML to any arbitrary Java class.

The Bean De/Serializer does a simple mapping between XML elements and
bean properties.  But maybe some people have the need to map a
relatively flat XML structure into a graph of objects.  Or a deeply
nested XML document into a single (flat) Java object.

Subject: Format/Structure of req./res. soap msg.

Hi All,

What determines the structure/format of custom types(we use in a web
service method call) in request/response soap mesages(that we can view
using AXIS TCPMonitor). Does the schema definition in WSDL determines
and/or the custom (de)serializers (like jaxb, jibx, castor) determines
it ?

Please clarify ... 

Thanks & Regards,
