</p><h2>Dealing With Casting Abstract Types to Concrete Types </h2>
<p>
    If you turn on <i>parseInAttr</i> and <i>genOutAttr</i>, the system will
    semi-automatically deal with casting of elements declared as a being of a
    type that is an abstract type to/from the concrete type actually to be used
    in a message.  On an element that is decleared to be a type which is an
    abstract type, the value of the <b>::type</b> key in the dictionary will
    specify the concrete type to be actually used (or for a reply message the
    concrete type that was actually used).
</p>
<p>
    <B>NOTE:</B> While in the WSDL the concreate type must be an extention
    of the abstract type, the package does not enforce this restriction, so
    caution must be taken.

<p>
XML arrays are represented in dictionary format as a list of values.  
Lets consider what this looks like for a 
&lt;href="#SimpleTypeArray"&gt;simple type&lt;/href&gt; and for a 
&lt;href="#ComplexTypeArray"&gt;complex type&lt;/href&gt;.
</p>

<p><a name="SimpleTypeArray"></a>
</p><h3>Array of Simple Type</h3>
<p>
Lets assume we have an element with the following definition:
</p><pre class="verbatim">    &lt;xs:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" name="Primes" type="xs:integer" /&gt;
</pre>
Lets also assume that we will have that element in our dictionary with 
the first four prime numbers, thus the dictionary representation for 
that element would look like:
<pre class="verbatim">    Primes {2 3 5 7}
</pre>
Or, if we have are using attributes (i.e. parseInAttr and/or genOutAttr are set), it would look like:
<pre class="verbatim">    Primes {{} {2 3 5 7}}
</pre>
