"types" - The Container Element for Data Types

This section describes 'types', the container element that holds extensibility elements from other language to define data types and data elements used to describe input/output messages for Web service operations.

"types" is a top level element of a WSDL 2.0 document. "types" is used as a container to include elements from another language to define data type and data elements used to describe input/output messages for Web service operations. The syntax of "types" is very simple:

<wsdl:types>
  ... extensibility elements from other language...
</wsdl:types>

Here is an example of "types" element:

  <wsdl:types>
    <xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
      targetNamespace="http://www.herongyang.com/Service/">
      <xsd:element name="Hello" type="xsd:string"/>    
      <xsd:element name="HelloResponse" type="xsd:string"/>    
    </xsd:schema>    
  </wsdl:types>
