WSDL 2.0-2 Adjuncts Not Supported by Woden API

This section provided a tutorial example to show that Woden Java API does not support WSDL 2.0 Part 2: Adjuncts specifications.

Let's continue to test to see if it can detect errors associated with message exchange patterns and message styles:

1. Hello_WSDL_20_Invalid_Pattern.wsdl - This WSDL 2.0 document is using the "in-out" message exchange pattern. But it is missing the "output" message definition.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<wsdl:description xmlns:wsdl=""
  xmlns:wsoap= ""

    Copyright (c) 2009 All Rights Reserved.

    <xsd:schema xmlns:xsd=""
      <xsd:element name="Hello" type="xsd:string"/>
      <xsd:element name="HelloResponse" type="xsd:string"/>

  <wsdl:interface name="helloInterface">
    <wsdl:operation name="Hello"
      <wsdl:input messageLabel="Req" element="hy:Hello"/>

  <wsdl:binding name="helloBinding"
    <wsdl:operation ref="hy:Hello"

  <wsdl:service name="helloService"
    <wsdl:endpoint name="helloEndpoint"


The test result is surprising. It looks like message exchange pattern rules are not implemented.

herong> java -cp .;\local\axis2\lib\* Wsdl20Validator \

This is a valid WSDL 2.0 document.

Conclusion: The Woden Java API only supports the "WSDL Version 2.0 Part 1: Core" specification. It does not support the "WSDL Version 2.0 Part 2: Adjuncts" specification.
