Hi folks,

Below is a note from Pete Zehler who has been experimenting
with the just-posted WSDL/1.1 for SOAP/1.1 with a somewhat
out-of-date gSOAP package.

I'll take a look at these, but the namespace declarations
are something that will probably change again as the schema
are integrated into a future SM/2.0 release - I don't consider
namespace changes necessarily desirable for the Formal Approval
vote versions - my experience has been that adding ANY explicit
namespaces immediately breaks my XMLSPY 2004, XSV 2.10, and
other tools - which is why I left them out so far.

I'll do some experimenting.  The changes to negative ranges
(squashing them to zero minimums) definitely should NOT be
incorporated into the approved versions.

Not sure what Pete means by "document elements", but I'll
take a look.

By the way, the gSOAP that I have locally installed compiled
all of my posted WIMS schemas without change and generated C 
source and sample SOAP messages without errors or warnings.
Likewise, my locally installed XMLSPY 2004.

Since the WSDL/1.1 will always be INFORMATIVE, I'm opposed
to making substantive changes to the actual schemas (other
than possibly namespace declarations) for Formal Approval.

We need to come to concensus VERY quickly about any schema
edits, because they will delay the WIMS Formal Approval we
intended to start momentarily and span April face-to-face.

- Ira

I have modified your WSDL slightly to generate the messages.  The main
changes are in the WSDL files where I made sure WSDL is the default
namespace and WIMS is the targetnamespace.  I changed the document elements
to comments.  I am not sure if there really is anything wrongwith the
element or its position, I just know my tool (SoapScope) complained about
it.  I added some namespace tags to wims elements.

I did some things that I think only have to be done to satisfy my version of
gSOAP which is rather old (2.7.5).  I have avoided moving up to minimize
churn until the next version comes out that supports streaming MTOM>.  The
changes I made in all the schema files was to declare the wims namespace and
make it the default and tragte namespaces.  I am fairly sure this should not
be done and the namespace for the included schema will be coerced to the
target namespace of the including schema or wsdl.

I had to make some changes to the intermediate file (Agent.h and Manager.h)
to avoid a known bug in my version of gSOAP.  Anyplace that has a range with
a negative minimum (e.g. -23..23 for PlanHour) I had to replace the negative
with a 0.  This is fixed in subsequent versions of gSOAP.
