Appendix E - WSDLs for QED

The WSDL for the QED transaction PCC-1 represents the interface contract for the QED profile. Conformance to this contract is a requirement of the profile. However, the WSDL representing the this contract is not necessarily the best WSDLs to use when generating application proxies.

There is a general guideline for generating proxies make application development much easier for complex WSDL/schemas such as the ones included for QED. Use a generic, non-strongly typed WSDL that is for the purpose of generating the proxy. Use of a strongly typed WSDL forces the generation infrastructure to go through all the XML type definitions. It will then generate classes for each of them, which can result in thousands of generated classes and megabytes of generated code. In addition, the mapping between the schema and object oriented constructs is not straightforward. Because of both the size, and complexity of the schema, proxy generators often run into problems with valid instances of strongy typed WSDLs.

A commonly used method for creating non-strongly typed WDSL for HL7 Messages used for generating proxies substitutes the ANY data type for the payload of either the message infrastructure or the control act. This results in much smaller proxies. Applications receiving messages using these proxies may want to validate inputs since they are no longer validated by the proxy. A discussion of this method of proxy generation can be found in this article: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms954603.aspx. See the section on Web Services Code Generation.
