Hi
Thank you for reading my post
In netbeans we can create a wsdl from scratch and we can choose to import a xsd into the wsdl , after that we can set message parts' types from xsd elements or xsd complex type, what are/is differences between using element or "complex type" as message part type.

Thanks

If you want your service as rpc/lit style, the standard way is to use complex types in the message part definitions. With doc/lit style, the message parts should refer to elements, as per the WS-I Basic profile.

It affects the XML representation on the wire slightly.

You should just choose the one you want to use. Really.
