Subject Re: rpc/literal and Schema Validation

Hi Anne

Thanks for your valuable reply.
Let me explain  in detail...

<xsd:element name="radius">


               <xsd:restriction base="xsd:float">

                  <xsd:minInclusive value="0.05"/>

                 <xsd:maxInclusive value="1.0"/>



if radius element value is not between 0.05 to 1.0 i believe Axis should
throw an error. let me know if my understanding is wrong..
