Bob, as you have noted, this issue is already on our issues list, and so we
are committed to deal with it. Unless you think there is something missing
from the existing description of that issue, we will leave it as is.
Thanks,

Hello,

After reading the 1.2 version spec for SOAP, I wish to renew
previous concerns about Section 7.1 "RPC responses" [1].
Specifically, there seems to be no provision for the case of method
signatures with a void return. As it stands, the first accessor in the
response is assumed to contain or reference a return value. The
situation results in confusion when the method signature contains
a void return and one or more "out" parameters... the first accessor
is treated as the return, rather than as the first "out" param.

This area needs clarification, as real world implementation
experience has proven it to be troublesome.

The question: what is the representation for a response with a void
return, possibly with "out" or "in,out" parameters?

The matter was placed on the the XMLP issues list and has id
"16". [2]

Thanks,

RC
