RESOLVED: WSIT and WCF Jun CTP Interop Bug

Posted by arungupta on July 14, 2006 at 5:44 PM PDT

Taking on from previous post ...

Even though the list of breaking changes from Feb
CTP to Vista Beta 2
and Vista
Beta 2 to Jun CTP
are documented. The list is missing a "minor"
detail of changing the WS-Addressing
1.0 WSDL Binding
namespace from
(same as SOAP
namespace) to
(WSDL Binding CR namespace). As a result a user reported
interop problems
between Jun CTP and WSIT.

I updated the namespace for WS-Addressing WSDL Binding in WSIT this morning.
After deploying one of the JAX-WSA
unit tests and invoking svcutil.exe to generate proxy, got the following

Warning: The optional WSDL extension element 'UsingAddressing' from namespace '' was not handled.
XPath: //wsdl:definitions[@targetNamespace='']/wsdl:binding[@name='wsaTestPortTypeBindingAddressingRequired']

Seems like this CTP completely ignores a standard W3C extension
to indicate WS-Addressing on a binding/port. It generated the proxy
correctly but of course the client did not send expected WS-Addressing headers
and thus the endpoint faulted appropriately. Anyway, I specified UsingAddressing
within a policy assertion, regenerated the proxy and invoked the client. The
server returned the response correctly and CTP client displayed the response in

WSIT is now again interoperating with Jun CTP.
