Subject RE: Generated code from WSDL
Date Sat, 17 Mar 2007 07:49:32 GMT
I'd like to suggest that this behavior be changed; given WSDL's (mistaken)
decision to include physical service endpoint information in a WSDL
document, lots of people[1] are breaking WSDL documents up into two parts,
one containing the "interface" definitions by which to generate the proxy
APIs, and the other containing the physical service definitions that can be
swapped in & out as necessary to represent actual physical addresses (for
easier movement between testing & production, for example).

I understand that the tool now uses the service builder, but frankly, if the
cost of doing this is the loss of this kind of codegen scenario, then it's a
bad refactoring and should be backed out.

<warning type='criticism' goal='constructive' style='tough-love'>
And FWIW, answers of "We did it this way deliberately" are not really
answers to questions. At the least, the answers should include "why" it was
done that way, and what the thought process was when the decision was made
to throw away functionality from previous versions. So no, IMHO, the below
*didn't* answer the question.
