IBM i IWS Client: Add option to allow unknown tags in response
My company used the Integrated Web Services (IWS) Client tool wsdl2rpg.sh to generate a *SRVPGM that we are using in production to consume a vendor partner's web service. Every few months the vendor releases enhancements to their web service, which have included adding fields (XML tags) to one or more of the responses. When the *SRVPGM receives a tag it does not recognize, it throws this exception:
AxisSoapException: Soap message content is not valid. Unexpected or extraneous element (ElementName) encountered.
Please add an option to have Axis ignore unrecognized tags and continue, instead of failing (functionally similar to the "allowExtra" option of RPG's XML-INTO).
We use our vendor's web service to enable real-time EFT and credit-card payments on our customer-facing web site; however this issue could affect any significant web service that is consumed by an IWS client.
