dynamic xml schema
I have often thought about the concept of dynamically generated WSDL
documents, for cases in which more ad-hoc interaction among systems
needs to occur, perhaps driven by the context of a request. But I think
we're a ways off from that in terms of standards and products - if it is
indeed a useful concept.
