Step 3. Create an Element

Step 3. Create an Element

You can optionally create an element on the
WSDL
view of a web service. You can create an operation fault or a header with elements you create in the
WSDL
view of the web service. An element can contain multiple elements and child elements.
Before you create an element, you must create a web service and define one or more operations from the
Create a Web Service
wizard.
  1. Open the web service.
  2. Select the
    WSDL
    view.
  3. Show the
    Design
    of the WSDL. Then, in the Schema section select an element or the namespace entry above the elements.
  4. Click the
    New Element
    button.
  5. To add an element to the element, click the arrow next to the
    New
    button, and then click
    Element
    .
  6. To add child elements to an element, select the element, click the arrow next to the
    New
    button, and then click
    Child Element
    .
  7. Optionally, configure the type for each element.
    1. Click the
      Selection
      button in the
      Type
      field.
    2. Choose an XSD type or a Schema object type and click
      OK
      .
