Web Dynpro Domino Web Service Consumer Problem

Dear All,

We are trying to consume a Web Service on Domino.

The web service is working Fine on webdynpro web service checker (EP perspective, Web Service Checker), but when tested with check and deploy, the Webservice return an error:

"Service call exception; nested exception is: The empty string is not acceptable for a value of an xmlns:* attribute.(:main:, row:1, col:0)"

It is a simple web service getting a string in input and returning a simple string (xsd string in both cases),

here are the soap messages used:


-" xmlns:tns=" serviceagent.nsf/directorywsdl" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:soap="" xmlns="">


<tnsMethod:getperson xmlns:tnsMethod="uri:Domino">" xsi:type="xsd:string">Davis





-" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="">


<Answer xsi:type="xsd:string">Jim Davis555-9934480-7112Jim_Davis@JKToys.comGlen Falls1313 Mocking Bird laneNY127842241~</Answer>




this information came from the Webdynpro web service checker (or EP web service checker in Netweaver developer studio).

Any Idea will be welcome.

    In a Web Service Navigator when you call the Web Service you can check the Null checkbox and this data field is not send to web service. By defult even if you not provide this kind of data this message type is send with blank value. In WD enviroment the default bechaviour is like in a NULL case, which means that the field is not send.

    Your Web Service require you to send fields even with a blank value so you should instantiate their model instances and bind them to the model in any case.That's what this error says.

    Hope it helps.
