BPEL Automatically Creates Blank Namespaces

This problem can occur on any platform.


Using BPEL MLR#6, BPEL Processes call web services via SOAP. In this case the wsdl message has two elements, the types of these elements refer to two different namespaces in two different xsd's.
For ex:

<xsd:element name="icrm_cust_cnfrmReg">
<xsd:element name="messageHeader" type="mh:messageHeaderType"/>
<xsd:element name="icrm_cust_cnfrmReg_type"

If we invoke the WSDL through the BPEL Console (or initiate the BPEL Process from SOAPUI), BPEL automatically adds a blank namespace to the elements:
<messageHeader xmlns="">
<icrm_cust_cnfrmReg_type xmlns="">
