LIS — Metadata ports are ambiguous in WSDL

  • Key: LIS-9
  • Legacy Issue Number: 7569
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Problem : Metadata ports are ambiguous in WSDL:
    The spec allows duplicate metadata to be served by different WSDL ports as
    well as multiple ports that are not duplicates. However, the spec does not
    specify a way for the client to determine which ports are duplicates and
    which are true new metadata.

    Suggested Solution:
    Change the WSDL service name to reference a unique metadata instance, and
    all endpoint bindings contained in that service would be duplicates. This
    one to one mapping between a service name and metadata would basically
    group duplicate ports into individual services. By retrieving one port
    from all the services a client is guaranteed to receive all of the
    metadata without retrieving duplicate information. This standard practice
    would solve the problem and be in the confines of a valid WSLD schema.
