Please note if removing or adding operations
It is crucial to generate the binding content anew. Right-Click on the binding box [1] and choose 'Generate binding content...' [2]. Afterwards, check 'Overwrite existing binding information' and press OK [3].

Change output parameter

To change the output parameter, click on the arrow-link on the very right side of the output parameter [4]. That opens you the getCompaniesResponse element of that parameter [5]. On the right side, you see the anonymous type getCompaniesResponseType associated with the response element. There you find the out element. Left-click on its datatype (string) and choose 'New' [6]. Chose Complex Type and give it the name Company [7]. Right-click on the out element and change the multiplicity to 0..* [8]. That allows you to return zero or more company objects [9]. Open the 'Schema Index View' by clicking on the schema link on the very top-left corner [10]. In type 'Types'-section you find the Company type which we created before. Double-click on the Company type to open it [11]. What you see is an empty complex type. Right-click on the element's name to add the two child elements name and symbol[12]. The element Name will hold the company name and the element symbol its stock symbol. It should look like this: [13]. Save the WSDL.

Remove input parameter

To remove the input parameter, click on the arrow-link on the very right side of the input parameter [14]. There you see the anonymous getCompaniesType with in as its child element [15]. To get rid of this, right-click on the getCompanies element and choose 'Set Type' | 'New' [16]. A dialog will pop up to create the new type. Choose 'Create a local anonymous type' and click OK [17]. As a result, the getCompanies element will look like this: [18].
