Subject [Ws Wiki] Trivial Update of "FrontPage/Woden/APIReview/OneWsdlApi" by JohnKaputin

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Ws Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by JohnKaputin:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  The Woden API provides two 'views' of WSDL via the Component API and the Element API. Questions
have been asked about the value of this split and whether a single WSDL model would be better.
  
- The primary goal of the Woden project was to provide a faithful implementation of the W3C
WSDL2 spec to identify any problems with the spec and help the WSDL2 working group complete
it.  The WSDL2 spec is focussed mainly on the component model rather than its underlying XML
infoset representation. The component model is intended to be more useful to WSDL2 consumers
because they can obtain service information without worrying about XML specifics like traversing
composite documents.  However, knowledge of the XML infoset and document structure is needed
by WSDL2 editing and authoring applications that need to manipulate the XML.

  To address these two types of usage, the Woden API defines two views of the WSDL (effectively,
two WSDL APIs):
   * The Component API ({{{org.apache.woden.wsdl20}}}) faithfully reflects the abstract WSDL
Component model defined by Part 1 of the WSDL2 spec. It avoids any infoset details that are
not described as Component properties in the spec.
