Subject [jira] [Created] (AXIS2-5277) employ inheritance for codegenerated request/response objects
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2012 16:22:28 GMT
employ inheritance for codegenerated request/response objects

                 Key: AXIS2-5277
             Project: Axis2
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: codegen
    Affects Versions: 1.5.1
            Reporter: Anton Kraievoy
            Priority: Minor

ADB/Inheritance support (as well as wrapped/inlined type treatment) is so much implied so
that it's unclear what is supported and what is not and what are conditions to trigger desired
codegen behaviour. Please see this SO question for details (it's also included verbatim below).
I think we should add some documentation/samples on this, and I wish to help with it as soon
as time permits.

Also, a note aside: there're several undocumented options in wsdl2java, I think they should
be documented.

the question is quite simple so I hope I would be lucky to be clear enough to avoid creating
code sample for it. We are using Axis2 (1.5.1 to be precise) which is to create Java client
code and server stubs via wsdl2java, using our hand-crafted WSDL/XSD files. The service is
generated in document-style mode, and we use ADB beans serialization stack.

Our new webservice has some common attributes in all methods that we are to create. Say, each
of requests is to be marked with some accessToken, otherPartyID and other similar properties.

I was able to employ inheritance in schemas, so Request/Response types do extend common complexType
and I don't have to repeat myself while creating schemas/WSDL for the webservice. But, when
I try to code up the implementation, I (to my utter frustration) see that all codegenerated
Request/Response objects are inheriting java.lang.Object and there's no common superclass
with the common properties.

It would be quite nice to have such a class, so that code which treats those common properties
stays generic and I don't have to use reflection and other dirty tricks to avoid monkey coding.

My current suspicion is that AXIS does not support inheritance across method Request/Response
types, while it supports it for parameter types. Please share your experiences on this matter.

If you have any definite/precise answer with a link to documentation/sources of AXIS this
will be just great.

Thanks in advance, Anton
