Subject Ambigious use of isElementData in the Block interface ?
Date Fri, 06 May 2011 03:18:59 GMT
In the Block interface, a method named isElementData is defined with doc
description below, from my understanding, it only return true while the
block could be represented as a single element.
     * @return true if data is always an element; false if possibly mixed
content or multiple
     *         elements
    public boolean isElementData();

In the getQName() of BlockImpl class,  any XML parsing exception is
swallowed if isElementData return false. IMO,  it should only ignore it
while the block elment might be a MIME type, which means it is of a
DataSource type. e.g. while invoking the Dispatch<Source>.invoke, aninvalid
XML string like <simplerequest><param>1</param><simpleRequest> is
passed, no
exception is thrown, while a WebServiceException should be expected.
Thougths ? If I did not miss anything, would like to open a JIRA for it and
attach a draft patch.
