      Hi Sanjiva,
      OK, gotcha. Per Simon's previous note, MS Toolkit is limited to simple types. I'll look around for an alternative
      example, and if I can't find one, I try and set one up with .NET B1 or something like that.

      Hi Tony,

      What I'm actually looking for is a service that doesn't put in the xsi:type
      stuff and relies on WSDL/SDL/whatever to get the knowledge of the types of
      parameters of a call. We recently put in support in Apache SOAP to handle
      that and I haven't been able to find any complex type tests. I wrote a
      simpel test to talk to your guidgen server (written in MS SOAP I believe)
      and it works fine.

      One  other note -  to illustrate the existing struct array test, here is
      the  request/response wiredump. In
      this  example, it's a Apache 2.0 client hitting a SOAPLite server (it works
      successfully) . Let me know if
      this  is what you're thinking about, or if you need something different.

      Hi  Sanjiva,

      Thanks, I'm glad you find the idea  useful!

      The  yahoo group is listed now - I accidently delisted it from their
      directory, but  it's
      visible again. Just search for"soapbuilders"  at groups.yahoo.com and you
      see  it pop up .

      The  testbed as I'vedescribed has an "echoStruct" and "echoStructArray"
      methods -
      I've built this service already for  Apache and SOAP::Lite - for Apache,
      the service uses
      the  Bean serializer to map to/from a simple object. See

      http://www.xmethods.net/detail.html?id=10  for SOAP::Lite
      http://www.xmethods.net/detail.html?id=11   for Apache

      Is  this what you are thinking of?

      As  far as MS or 4s4c, I'm not sure of any other existing services that
      complex types - Simon, do you know of  any?

      If  you describe the kind of type/structure you'd like to see built as an
      "echo"  , I can make sure its part
      of  the target test set and start the construction in a variety of
      implementations, including the ones
      you  mention.

      Hi  Tony,

      I think this is a great idea! Thanks for starting the  work!

      Do u know of a service implemented with MS SOAP, 4S4C, ... etc.  that uses
      complex types and is available on the net? I'm trying to test  the apache
      soap interoperabilty using complex types with non-Apache SOAP  services and
      I can't seem to find interesting services to  try.

      Also, what's the Yahoo group for this? I can't seem to find the  group to
      change my email  address!

      I'd add a circular  structure:

      LinkedList echoLinkedList(LinkedList  linkedList)

      where the definition in Java would be

      public class  LinkedList {
          int x;
          LinkedList  next;

      which means nullable and referenced next part. Sending a  circular list
      through might also help.  8-)
