Generating anyType Elements and Attributes

Generating anyType Elements and Attributes

Some schema elements and attributes allow any type of data in a SOAP message.
The anytype element represents a choice of all globally known types. Before you map a port to an anyType element in a SOAP message, choose an available complex type or xs:string. If the WSDL or schema does not contain a complex type, the Developer tool replaces the anyType element type with xs:string.
To choose an element type in the Operation area, click
Choose
in the
Type
column for the anyType element. A list of available complex types and xs:string appears.
The following element and attributes allow any type of data:
anyType element
Allows an element to be any datatype in the associated XML file.
anySimpleType element
Allows an element to be any simpleType in the associated XML file.
ANY content element
Allows an element to be any global element defined in the schema.
anyAttribute attribute
Allows an element to be any attribute already defined in the schema.
