Symptom

When invoking certain third party webservices through PowerBuilder, an additional "s:type" parameter is appended to returned xml elements.

Environment

PowerBuilder

Reproducing the Issue

1.  Create a webservice proxy to a specific third party webservice (for example Systems Union)*

2.  Call the webservice and the response will have s:type element attribute similar to below:

<ns1:Header

s:type="ns1:typeImportHeader">

<ns1:Version

s:type="y:string">1.0</m:Version>

<ns1:SourceApplication

s:type="y:string">XXXXX</m:SourceApplication>

<ns1:Status

s:type="y:string">TEST</m:Status>

<ns1:ReturnCheckResults

s:type="y:boolean">true</m:ReturnCheckResults>

<ns1:LangID

s:type="y:string"></m:LangID>

 

Resolution

 

Both formats (with or without s:type) are correct and should be handled correctly by the SOAP engine.

For customers using easySOAP engine that want to remove the s:type attributes the following key/value pair can be added to your application's pb.ini file to change the format used:

 

[Web Service]

OmitSoapParameterType=1

Please note this only applies to easySOAP proxy objects.
