    All,
     
    I'm fairly new to AXL development but after downloading the UCM AXL sql toolkit, i tried to import the axlapi.wsdl
    on my Eclipse (i am using XFire as the SOAP engine and/or the code
    generation tool, similar to axis) but it failed with some error. I then
    imported the axlapi.wsdl in the axis directory which did work. The
    question is, can i safely start using this API or were they somehow
    specific to AXIS engine. WSDL is a wsdl, don't understand the
    distinction with axis spefic wsdl.

    Hi Ankur,
     
    AXL development is not specific to axis. I guess you can use XFire as the SOAP Engine.
     
    Thanks and Regards,
    Anitha

    Different AXL compilers (XFire being one) have different capabilities and support different features.  The AXL WSDL is fairly complex and may not work without modification with some compilers.  Cisco tests - to some extent - Axis and the .NET compiler with the AXL WSDL, so those are known to work.  You may be able to get it to work with XFire with some tweaking.

    Thanks guys for the response. Quick follow up question, what's the difference between the axlapi.wsdl in the parent directory that didn't work for me and the one in the AXIS directory which did work.

    I think the major difference is merging the separate .xsd's into one .xsd.  There may have been other changes to make it work better with Axis, you can try a diff.
     
    There is a presentation which goes into some of the details of using the WSDL with Axis: http://developer.cisco.com/web/axl/wikidocs?src=/wiki/display/AXL/how-to_Axis.  Perhaps some of the specific items apply to XFire as well.
