    which field mapping values allow a default value to be specified.
    WS_XML_BUFFER_TYPE
    Value: 21
    Used when serializing an WS_XML_BUFFER*.


    This type has no associated type description structure.


    This type can be used with the following WS_TYPE_MAPPING values:



    This type can be used with the following WS_FIELD_MAPPING values:



    This type can be used with the following WS_FIELD_OPTIONS values. See the documentation for WS_FIELD_MAPPING for which options are supported for a given field mapping value:


    WS_FIELD_OPTIONAL

  • WS_FIELD_NILLABLE_ITEM


  • WS_FIELD_NILLABLE
  • WS_FIELD_NILLABLE_ITEM

  • WS_FIELD_OPTIONAL
  • WS_FIELD_NILLABLE_ITEM

  • WS_FIELD_NILLABLE
  • WS_FIELD_OPTIONAL WS_FIELD_NILLABLE_ITEM

    A nil value is represented using a NULL pointer.


    This type does not support specifying a WS_DEFAULT_VALUE.


    The interpretation of the contents of the WS_XML_BUFFER is as follows:




    • When used at the top level or with WS_ELEMENT_FIELD_MAPPING, the
      WS_XML_BUFFER should contain a single element which represents
      the attribute and element content. The local name and namespace of the
      element in the buffer is ignored; it is replaced with actual element
      name and namespace when the buffer is written. For example:



      syntax<br><br>// Element in WS_XML_BUFFER<br>&lt;PrefixInBuffer:LocalNameInBuffer xmlns:PrefixInBuffer="namespace-in-buffer" other-attributes&gt;<br>text-and-or-element-content<br>&lt;/PrefixInBuffer:LocalNameInBuffer&gt;<br><br>// Element that is written<br>&lt;NewPrefix:NewLocalName xmlns:NewPrefix="new-namespace" other-attributes&gt;<br>text-and-or-element-content<br>&lt;/NewPrefix:NewLocalName&gt;<br>

      To avoid problems with namespace collisions, it is a best practice to follow one of the
      following rules when selecting a namespace for the element in the buffer:



      • Use a namespace other than "" that is not otherwise used in the buffer.

      • Use the same namespace as the element that will be written.


      When the value is deserialized, the element name and namespace will correspond
      to the element that was read.




    • When used with WS_ANY_ELEMENT_FIELD_MAPPING, the
      WS_XML_BUFFER should contain a single element which
      represents a single element in the XML content.




    • When used with WS_REPEATING_ELEMENT_FIELD_MAPPING, each
      of the WS_XML_BUFFERs that are serialized in the array
      has the same convention as with WS_ELEMENT_FIELD_MAPPING described above (each WS_XML_BUFFER represents a single element
      in the XML content).




    • When used with WS_REPEATING_ANY_ELEMENT_FIELD_MAPPING, each
      of the WS_XML_BUFFERs that are serialized in the array
      represents a single element in the XML content.




    • When used with WS_ANY_CONTENT_FIELD_MAPPING, the
      WS_XML_BUFFER may contain zero or more top level elements
      or text. This content corresponds to the remaining XML content of the
      containing structure.



    WS_CHAR_ARRAY_TYPE
    Value: 22
    Used when serializing two fields of a structure as a unit: a WCHAR* field which
    points to an array of WCHARs, and a ULONG field which contains the number
    of characters in the array. This type may only be used within a
    WS_FIELD_DESCRIPTION.



    syntax<br><br>struct<br>{<br> ULONG count; // array length, in characters<br> WCHAR* chars; // array of unicode characters<br>} value;<br>

    The fields can be anywhere in the contained structure and in any order, since
    their offsets within the structure are specified separately as part of the
    WS_FIELD_DESCRIPTION.
    The offset of the count field is specified in the countOffset field, and the
    offset of the chars field is specified in the offset field.


    Embedded zeros are allowed in the array of characters.

    WS_UTF8_ARRAY_TYPE
    Value: 23
    Used when serializing two fields of a structure as a unit: a BYTE* field which

    their offsets within the structure are specified separately as part of the
    WS_FIELD_DESCRIPTION.
    The offset of the count field is specified in the countOffset field, and the
    offset of the bytes field is specified in the offset field.

    WS_BYTE_ARRAY_TYPE
    Value: 24
    Used when serializing two fields of a structure as a unit: a BYTE* field which

  • This type can be used with the following WS_FIELD_MAPPING values:




    • WS_NO_FIELD_MAPPING. This is used to initialize a field of a structure
      to a default value when deserializing. This is used for the case where the
      particular field does not have a mapping to the XML content, and the type
      is not one of the other WS_TYPEs. The value will be initialized as
      follows:

      • If WS_FIELD_POINTER is specified, then the field will
        be set to NULL.

      • If WS_FIELD_POINTER is not specified, then the field will
        be set to the WS_DEFAULT_VALUE if allowed for the type and
        specified, otherwise it will be set to all zeros. The size of the field is specified as part of
        the WS_VOID_DESCRIPTION. If a WS_VOID_DESCRIPTION is not specified, the field is interpreted as being size 0.

      used to discard the XML content when deserializing, or ignore the field when serializing.
      Since the values are not stored, a field of the structure is not required. The field
      offset should be zero and the field size should be zero (which is the default if a

    This type does not support specifying a WS_DEFAULT_VALUE.

    Remarks

    Many of the WS_TYPEs have a corresponding type description structure which allows for additional information used to serialize or deserialize the type.

    For example, the WS_INT32_TYPE has a WS_INT32_DESCRIPTION structure which allows for constraints on the deserialized values. This is an optional type description (if not specified, the full 32-bit integer space is allowed).

    Another example is the WS_STRUCT_TYPE, which allows for the specification of a user-defined structure with fields. The fields are described in a WS_STRUCT_DESCRIPTION. This type description is required.

    Type description pointers accompany WS_TYPE in the various APIs and structures that are based on serialization. This should be NULL or non-NULL based on whether or not the type description is not defined, optional or required.
