About message definitions
The message element describes the parts of each request and response message in the Actuate Information Delivery API.
Actuate provides versions of its schema for the Microsoft .NET and Apache Axis environments. These environments require slightly different syntax for WSDL definitions. For example, a message definition contains a header element in the .NET version but not in the Apache Axis version. The code examples in this chapter use the Apache Axis version.
The following example shows the Apache Axis message description for a request to search for jobs:
<message name="SelectJobs">
<part name="Request" element="typens:SelectJobs" />
Like most requests, this one has a corresponding response.
<message name="SelectJobsResponse">
<part name="Response" element="typens:SelectJobsResponse" />
Operations that do not require a response do not have a corresponding response.
