Hi all,
I am currently trying to create a wsdl file for an existing web service so that clients can use wsdl2java to generate client side code. I have a few questions concerning namespaces generated for RPC/Literal style SOAP.
Currently when I try to use the wsdl2java stubs, my SOAP messages have following form:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
<createSalesOrder xmlns="Creator">
<ns1:SalesOrder xmlns:ns1="salesorder">
<ns2:Goods xmlns:ns2="goods"/>
The namespace prefix ns1 and ns2 are automatically generated and named by the stubs - is there any way to set the values or that? I would like to know if you can change "ns1" to "ba", for instance, either through modifying the stubs or wsdl/schema.
Secondly, is there any way to add namespace declaration to an element in the SOAP calls? For instance, I want to add xmlns:big="big" to createSalesOrder so that when I make the SOAP call, it would show <createSalesOrder xmlns="Creator" xmlns:big="big">.
Thanks for any help in advance!
