WSDL SOAP Analyzer improvements....

Post by chaeron » Thu Nov 16, 2006 9:53 pm

The WSDL SOAP Analyzer could use some enhancements, specially for those of us involved in SOA-based efforts:

1) Can we have it open in a tab instead of a window that always stays on top? Or at least a minimize button.

2) CTRL-SHIFT-P format & indent for both request and response.

3) Remember request/response values for each selected Port, so long as the tab/window is open.

These features would be very handy.

Thx!

Dear Andrzej,

Your requests seem very appropiate.

1) The WSDL SOAP Analyser is already presented as a view on Eclipse so I think there would be no problem doing this in the standalone version.
2) I see no problem in implementing this
3) Yes, this indeed could be useful

I placed your requests in our features list.
Due to the fact that we are about to release version 8, your feature requests will probably get implemented in a future minor version release.

Best regards,
Radu

Oh, and you also have some workarounds

For issue 2 you can right click the response text area and then choose Open in editor so that you can format and indent the content there.

For issue 3 you can save a snapshot of the current request + selected ports, actions in a WSSC file and then open it when needed. Just right click the request text area and choose "Save".

Regards,
Radu

Dear Andrzej,

We just wanted to let you know that we implemented most of your feature requests and they will probably be available in the next minor version release.
The WSDL Analyser Dialog can now be docked just like any other view and will remember its last position.
The request and response text areas have now a visual line wrap so that their content can be seen regardless of the areas widths. We also created a contextual action to "Format and indent" the request text area.
Now the edited request for an operation is remembered so you can switch to another operation, go back and you will have your modifications unaltered...

Regards,
Radu
