Symptoms

Upgrading a webservice from 8.1 to 10.3. We are encountering an issue with backwards compatibility when using the @UseWLW81BindingTypes annotator. Specifically, when using @UseWLW81BindingTypes to allow the input params to the webservice call in 10.3 to be optional (minOccurs=”0” in the WSDL). This works on atomic data types in the web method as well as String. However, an array of objects (i.e. MyArray[]) is set up as required input in 10.3, where in 8.1 it was not. This is causing an issue with backwards compatibility for web service clients. Note, the input params (params into the web method) are not their own object or in their own namespace. Client requests fail with below trace
