Error description

  • When a webservices consumer or provider is using a Web
    Services Description Language (wsdl) with
    elementFormDefault="unqualified", some elements in the SOAP
    message are still qualified.  This can cause problems with
    older versions of Microsoft .NET because they may be expecting
    all elements in the body to be unqualified.
    
    This is taking place because the .NET client or server has
    trouble deserializing SOAP messages serialized by WebSphere V6.
    The messages that .NET does not like contain prefixed elements
    such as
    
    <p123:helloWorld xmlns:p123="http://test.hello.world/">

    ****************************************************************
    Older .NET Web Services may expect SOAP message payload
    elements to be qualified using default namespaces ("payload
    elements" refers to the child elements of the SOAP Body
    element). But the Application Server v6 web services runtime
    does not serialize qualified elements using default
    namespaces; instead, it serializes qualified elements with
    prefixes and namespace declarations.
    Here's an example where a "name" element is qualified using a
    default namespace:
    <name xmlns="http://test.namespace/">John</name>
    and one where "name" is qualified using prefixes and namespace
    declarations:
    <pre2:name xmlns:pre2="http://test.namespace/">John</pre2:name>
    Older versions of .NET may have problems deserializing a SOAP
    message containing prefixed payload elements. This is a .NET
    limitation, since such a message is valid XML. This APAR tries
    to accommodate this limitation.
    This behavior was changed from the Application Server web
    services V5.1 runtime, which qualifies elements with default
    namespaces, not prefixes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JVM property
    com.ibm.ws.webservices.serializeOperationElementUsingDef
    aultNamespace was added to enable the JAX-RPC web services
    runtime to serialize the topmost payload element--the one that
    immediately follows the SOAP Body element--using a default
    namespace declaration.
    
    The APAR is applicable only for web services and web
    services clients generated from document/literal/wrapped style
    WSDLs.
    
    In order for the APAR to be enabled, the property must be set
    to "true". The property is set as a JVM Property.
    
    For unmanaged Application Server web services clients, this can
    be done via command line parameters in a command
    window/console, as in the following example:
    
    java
    -Dcom.ibm.ws.webservices.serializeOperationElementUsingDefaultNa
    mespace=true MyWebServiceClient
    
    For managed web services clients and web services running in
    the application server, the  property can be set via the
    administrative console.
    
    This would be accessed in a V6.1 console at:
    Servers->Application Servers->myServerName->Java and
    Process Management->Process Definition->Java Virtual
    Machine->Custom Properties
    
    Click "New" to create the new property and set "true" as
    the value to enable it. A restart of the server is required
    for the property to take effect.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.23, 6.0.2.33 and 7.0.0.1.  Please refer to the
