Subject Re: axiom VS data-binding?

Can you post a snippet of your types section. I wonder whether they all use
anyType, is so they are bound to IMElement which is Axiom. To get best use
of DataBinding you need to have your schema bound to types rather than

See how easy it is to use WSDL2java at
. But as I've said it depends on the schema.
