Hi,

WSDL tools, not related specifically to WSIF or Axis, should be shared. They would be of interest to any project within ws.apache.org and should belong to a common project, say ws-commons or something like that, IMHO.

In WSDL2Java alone we have the following code, split between the Axis version and new WSIF version (which has some minor differences with the Axis one, see below):
1. Code to parse WSDL types, generate java classes for user-defined types
2. Code to parse WSDL port type, message and generate stub interfaces
3. Code to generate Axis stubs and related classes
4. Code to generate WSIF test cases

(1) and (2) belong to ws-commons. (3) belongs within Axis, (4) belongs within WSIF. Right now I don't have any strong preferences over where the common code should go (as of today it is duplicated between Axis and WSIF), but eventually we should reorganize along the above lines.

Nirmal.

        Subject:        Re: WSIF WSDL2Java



The org.apache.wsif.wsdl package contains classes used at runtime so
perhaps we should move the wsdl2java class to a different package. How
about the following suggestions:

 org.apache.wsif.wsdl.tools
or
 org.apache.wsif.tools

If we want to keep all Axis dependant classes under the Axis provider, then
we might want:

 org.apache.wsif.providers.soap.apacheaxis.tools
or
 org.apache.wsif.providers.soap.apacheaxis.wsdl

Just some ideas. Comments?

I've committed a hack to the AXIS WSDL2Java tool for WSIF in
org.apache.wsif.wsdl.WSDL2Java. It changes WSDL2Java to not generate the
classes WSIF doesn't use, so only generate the complex type classes and
service endpoint interface, and a WSIF specific testcase The testcase can
use either stubs or the DII or both. For example:

   java org.apache.axis.wsdl.WSDL2Java -v -o\Temp -pbabel -tboth
http://www.xmethods.net/sd/2001/BabelFishService.wsdl

This makes another WSIF dependency on AXIS so maybe it shouldn't be there
at all? Perhaps it should be in a different package? And I'm open to
suggestions for a better format of the generated testcase?
