in thread Describing hashes in WSDL?

This is pretty much spot-on - In the WSDL, you can define complex argument types which may be composed by any number of sub-elements. For example, from a Perl web service that I wrote which employed WSDL:
<xsd:complexType name="queryElement"> <xsd:sequence> <xsd:element maxOccurs="1" minOccurs="1" name="address" type="xsd: +string"/> <xsd:element maxOccurs="1" minOccurs="1" name="category" type="xsd +:integer"/> <xsd:element maxOccurs="1" minOccurs="1" name="id" type="xsd:strin +g"/> <xsd:element maxOccurs="1" minOccurs="1" name="request" type="xsd: +string"/> <xsd:element maxOccurs="1" minOccurs="1" name="time" type="xsd:int +eger"/> </xsd:sequence> </xsd:complexType>


perl -le "print unpack'N', pack'B32', '00000000000000000000001000000000'"

    Ok.. this is looking better... I was looking at Programming Web Services with SOAP, however, and it said something about a structure type and being able to describe basically the top level and not have to define all the elements inside. Basically allowing you to adjust the hash as needed (this may not be the best for mass consumption, but would work well in my current project). Basically this supposedly would work because SOAP embeds the types in the data. Know how to do that? Until then, I will play with this and see if I can make it work. Thanks!
