    Default XSD/WSDL Files for the SOAP Server?

    I've taken a look at the SOAP interface with an eye to putting together an alternate SOAP server to talk to my existing mail/calendar store.

    From what I see from protocol traces (?debug=3), the ZCS submits using something akin to a SOAP package (the attributes on a SOAP Request seem strange to me, and I haven't figured out how to handle them yet), but the return value is not SOAP - it's JSON (very different format).

    Questions for the developers:

    1) Does the ZimbraWebClient only accept JSON, or will it accept return values that are true SOAP?
    2) What versions of the SOAP standard do you implement?
    3) Do you have XSD files for the XML submissions?
    4) Do you have WSDL files for the SOAP calls you do make?

    Thanks in advance,

    1) We have optimized for JSON. SOAP may work but I bet you'll hit trouble as we don't test/use SOAP responses since they are so much slower to parse compared to JSON

    2) 1.1 and 1.2 but we use 1.2 in almost all cases for our calls. 1.1 should work and I've used some external clients but it's not the most test path.

    3/4) No WSDL or XSD. The only docs are the docs in ZimbraServer/docs/soap*.txt

    Are the soap*.txt docs available online? Or do you have to download ZCS?

    Thanks!

    I just found the SOAP docs URL (in another thread, search=soap)...

    http://svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/zi...raServer/docs/

    I generated stub and domain objects using wsimport tool.

    Then I used Spring WS Client to use this stub; but getting an error like this while trying to create account request:

    org.springframework.ws.soap.client.SoapFaultClient Exception: unknown document: ns2:createAccountRequest
