Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

WebService client generation should display a warning when non-default namespace is entered and WSDL has multi target ns-es

WebService client generation wizard should display a warning when non-default namespace is entered and WSDL contains multiple target namespaces

Idea Priority Medium
Use Case
Generating a WebService Client under the following conditions 1. Using a non-default target namespace is required 2. The WSDL contains multiple target namespaces 3. The target namespaces in the WSDL contain duplicate/similar classnames when grouped in one single target namespace (from user option) currently fails because of duplicate/similar classnames in the non-default target namespace provided by the user. Therefore, an extra validation on the Target package field should warn the user for the potential name collisions and failure of the action. Please note that the command line script returns a non-descriptive errormessage in case the above error occurs.
