wsdl namespace problem
Dave -

Since WSDL files have QName in attributes, the namespace prefix in the attribute can be any in-scope namespace. This deviation from the XPath data model makes it very difficult to process WSDL files.

This is a case where Xalan-C deviates from the XPath data model, and does
not have a namespace node for every in-scope namespace on every element.
The following stylesheet produces the desired result:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<xsl:output encoding="utf-8" />

<xsl:template match="wsdl:operation">
  <xsl:element name="operation">
      <xsl:when test="contains(parent::node()/@name,':')">
          <xsl:variable name="ns"
select="substring-before(parent::node()/@name, ':')" />
        <xsl:attribute name="portType_nspc">
            <xsl:when test="contains(parent::node()/@name,':')">
              <xsl:value-of select="namespace::*[name() = $ns]"/>
        <xsl:attribute name="portType_nspc"/>


I've been tempted numerous times to fix this deviation, but the cases
where this has caused a problem have been extremely rare, and the cost in
memory overhead is considerable in many cases.
