Hi Marco,

The problem here is that the schema defines the types to be in the namespace 
http://runtime.onetwo.com/schemas/xinfo (the schema's targetNamespace). 
However, when you use the defined types, no mention of the namespace that 
the desired type is in is made.  i.e.  without a namespace prefix and 
without the default namespace being defined, referring to 
xEnvelopesRequestType asks the schema processor to look for 
xEnvelopesRequestType in 'no' namespace instead of in the 
http://runtime.onetwo.com/schemas/xinfo namespace where they are defined.

I think the easiest way to fix this is to define the following namespace 
prefix in your xs:schema start tag:
