Fix Genero 2.10 to 2.11 WSDL generation issue

How to convert a WSDL generated from a Genero 2.11 (or later) application to a WSDL as generated by Genero 2.10.

Since Genero 2.11, each BDL variable generates an associated named complexType in the WSDL and references it. While this does not impact the Web service, some tools will generate additional client stubs to follow the WSDL definition with the named complexType. As a result, any client program written from a WSDL generated in 2.10 must be reviewed if it uses a WSDL generated in 2.11 or later.

If you do not want to modify your application, you can use the WSDL conversion tool program to remove the named complexType and add the unnamed equivalent as child node of the parameter variable of all Web service operations, as if the WSDL had been generated in 2.10.

WSDL conversion tool

This program reads a WSDL, looks for all named complexType used in all the web operation parameters and modifies them in order to have unnamed complexType instead.
