What is the QName in Webservice?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
A QName is a qualified name, as specified by XML Schema Part2: Datatypes specification, Namespaces in XML, Namespaces in XML Errata. A qualified name is made up of a namespace URI, a local part, and a prefix. The prefix is not really a part of the QName and remains only to provide lexical information. It is not used in the equals(Object) or hashCode() methods.
Namespace URI and prefix may be omitted, in which case the default value "" (empty string) is used.
Instances of QName are immutable. You may safely store references.
