The address property of the endpoint is actually optional. There is no 
requirement in the spec that it is unique within a service. Only the name 
property of the endpoint must be unique within a service.

Yes, I expect Web service runtimes like Axis2 to support mixed SOAP 
1.1/1.2 environments as well as mixed WSDL 1.1/2.0. Woden is WSDL 2.0 only 
now but we'd like it to provide WSDL 1.1 support eventually.

RE: error in the WSDL primer


I don't think that's an error. You could have an endpoint that supported 
both SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2. The service could check the envelope to 
determine which SOAP version was being used, and respond in that format. 

Yes, I understand, this would be possible. But is this the intended 
meaning? That is, do endpoint addresses not have to be unique acording to 
the sepc?
Even if this would be the official WSDL definition, do you expect that 
WSDL tools, such as Woden/Axis2 will allow this?

I'd like to report an error in the WSDL example 
"Example 2-13. SOAP 1.2 and SOAP 1.1 Bindings"
of the WSDL primer

Both endpoints have the same address, which is
wrong (according to my understanding of endpoints).
