Bypass/remove tag in ABAP based Web Service

Hi All,

We have a requirement to generate a web service from RFC function module, The function module has importing parameter as deep structure with table types. The web service has been generated and working fine from soapUI. But we found that in WSDL a tag <item>..</item> for repeating table rows, which is not expecting from our client side.They have a request structure which is already using for another communication to Oracle system. Now they want to use same for SAP and are asking us same from SAP. We have removed the <item>..</item> tag manually from WSDL file. We found in testing the service from soapUI, the internal table is not filling with data(found it in FM debugging).

How to remove/bypass the <item>..</item> from web service.We have searched in SDN forums but no luck. Please help us if there is a way to get it done or any alternative solution. Any help much appreciated.

Below is the request:


<!--Zero or more repetitions:-->










Thanks in advance.

    In the generated web service definition, there is an "exposed" checkbox. Untick it, that's all.
