NAME

       SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType - simpleType base class

DESCRIPTION

       This module implements a base class for designing simple type classes modelling XML Schema
       simpleType definitions.

SYNOPSIS

           # example simpleType derived by restriction
           # XSD would be:
           # <simpleType name="MySimpleType">
           #    <restriction base="xsd:string" />
           # </simpleType>
           package MySimpleType;
           use Class::Std::Fast::Storable constructor => 'none';
           # restriction base implemented via inheritance
           use SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::Builtin;
           use SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType;
           use base qw(
               # derive by restriction
               'SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType::restriction',
               # restriction base
               'SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::Builtin::string'
           );

           # example simpleType derived by list.
           # XSD would be:
           # <simpleType name="MySimpleListType">
           #    <list itemTipe="xsd:string" />
           # </simpleType>
           package MySimpleListType;
           use Class::Std::Fast::Storable constructor => 'none';
           # restriction base implemented via inheritance
           use SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::Builtin;
           use base ('SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType',
               'SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::Builtin::list',        # derive by list
               'SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::Builtin::string'       # list itemType
           );

How to write your own simple type

       Writing a simple type class is easy - all you have to do is setting up the base classes
       correctly.

       The following rules apply:

       ·   simpleType derived via list

           simpleType classes derived via list must inherit from these classes in exactly this
           order:

            SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType
            SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::Builtin::list         # derive by list
            The::List::ItemType::Class                      # list itemType

           The::List::ItemType::Class can either be a builtin class (see
           SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Builtin) or another simpleType class (any other class implementing
           the right methods is supported too, but not for the faint of heart).

       ·   simpleType derived via restriction

           simpleType classes derived via restriction must inherit from these classes in exactly
           this order:

            SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType               # you may leave this out
            SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType::restriction  # derive by restriction
            The::Restriction::Base::Class                      # restriction base

           The::Restriction::Base::Class can either be a builtin class (see
           SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Builtin) or another simpleType class.

           The slight inconsistency between the these variants is caused by the restriction
           element, which has different meanings for simpleType and complexType definitions.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

       ·   Thread safety

           SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType uses Class::Std::Fast::Storable which uses
           Class::Std. Class::Std is not thread safe, so SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType is
           neither.

       ·   union

           union simple types are not supported yet.

       ·   XML Schema facets

           No facets are implemented yet.
