Derived Types and Element Substitution

Derived Types and Element Substitution

You can map input ports to derived complex types, anyType elements, and substitution groups in a SOAP message. The SOAP message can include elements for the base type and the derived types.
In a type relationship, the base type is the type from which you derive another type. A derived type inherits elements from the base type. An extended complex type is a derived type that inherits elements from a base type and includes additional elements. A restricted complex type is a derived type that restricts some elements from the base type.
