XMLIGNORENULL equivalent for object valued properties
I'm writing a SOAP client in Ensemble (2017.2.2) that is required to pass empty elements to the SOAP server in the form <xsi:type="ns:ResponsibleUser"/> where ResponsibleUser is a class that itself has no properties. I initially thought I'd found the answer with the XMLIGNORENULL parameter of XML enabled classes but this didn't make any difference for SOAP requests, only working when I wrote the XML to a file. Then I came across the XMLIGNORENULL parameter for the SOAP client class (inherited from %SOAP.WebBase), but this only works for %String properties and not for properties of arbitrary class types.
Is there a way to force the output of an empty object-valued property as an empty element in a SOAP request?
Thanks in advance for any guidance
