WDL types and element definition issue

WDL types and element definition issue

Hi all,

I am facing an issue while defining my WSDL, I perhaps try to do someting that is not possible, but since I need it I need your help !

I need to declare an element of a complexType declared in the same WSDL.
A simple example below, of a complexType cake which should be in format 'cakeFormat' but cannot since cakeFormat is declared as an element :


<wsdl:definitions ...>
    <xsd:schema ...>
      <xsd:element name="cakeFormat">
            <xsd:element name="flavour" type="xsd:string" nillable="false"/>
            <xsd:element name="name" type="xsd:string" nillable="false"/>
      <xsd:element name="checkMeal">
            <xsd:element name="meat" type="xsd:string" nillable="false"/>
            <xsd:element name="pie" type="tns:cakeFormat" nillable="false"/>
      <xsd:element name="checkMealResponse">
           <xsd:element name="mealMark" type="xsd:int" nillable="false"/>

My WSDL cannot be validated : how can I declare in a complexType definition, an element of another complexType declared just above ?

Thanks and have a nice day !

Gaellle. cheers
