Good Evening Dave

looking quickly at the WSDL A defined service has 1+ Binding/Port 
combination for each location
<wsdl:service name="StockQuoteService">
<wsdl:port name="StockQuoteServiceSOAP11port" 
location="http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/StockQuoteService" />

so looking at the example of binding of StockService which has 
(as we have been shown binding StockQuoteServiceSOAP11Binding has 1 PortType 
called 'StockQuoteServiceSOAP11port')

PortType has input and output messages
<wsdl:portType name="StockQuoteServicePortType">
<wsdl:operation name="getPrice">

<wsdl:input message="axis2:getPriceMessage" />
<wsdl:output message="axis2:getPriceResponseMessage" />


The inputMessage getPriceMessage has a definition which contains one or more 
part names
<wsdl:message name="getPriceMessage">
<wsdl:part name="part1" element="ns:getPrice" />

the localpart element getPrice has the message getPrice which is a 
complexType defined of even more elements
<xs:element name="getPrice">
<xs:element name="symbol" nillable="true" type="xs:string" />

Any other entities which getPrice does not need (other than symbol) is 
extraneous to the run characteristics of the operation and are not 
identified or carried by the message
Are you envisioning a need to carry any other entity?..if so how should the 
message identify these characteristics ?
