We are defining our Web Services such that all the operations take a String in and return a String.
The contents of the two Strings, however, are XML, as defined in our own XSD's that we publish to our customers.
By effectively hiding the messages to the WSDL, what features are we missing out on, current and future? Also, one of the operations can send and receive an attachment.

Type mapping is one feature I can think of. If you were to send the XML in the "exploded" format, the recipient could generate the code for mapping your specific XML structure to a class/whatever on his platform and language.

We've given that some thought. Couldn't one make an argument that type mapping could still be achieved via using the XSD's and a data binding tool such as Castor?
