ZSI bug?

  Hi All,

I'm trying to use ZSI (and SOAP) for the first time. I read somewhere 
that ZSI is the most compete SOAP implementation. I have ZSI-1.7 and 
PyXML-0.8.4. This very simple code:

import ZSI
fname = 'eBaySvc.wsdl'
version = 421
url = 'http://developer.ebay.com/webservices/%s/%s' % (version,fname)
print "Creating proxy..."
proxy = ZSI.ServiceProxy(url)
print proxy

Throws me:

C:/Python24/pythonw.exe -u  "T:/Python/Projects/eBay-SOAP/test.py"
Creating proxy...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "T:/Python/Projects/eBay-SOAP/test.py", line 6, in ?
    proxy = ZSI.ServiceProxy(url)
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ZSI\ServiceProxy.py", line 34, in 
__init__
    wsdl = ZSI.wstools.WSDLTools.WSDLReader().loadFromURL(wsdl)
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ZSI\wstools\WSDLTools.py", line 
42, in loadFromURL
    wsdl.load(document)
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ZSI\wstools\WSDLTools.py", line 
260, in load
    schema = reader.loadFromNode(WSDLToolsAdapter(self), item)
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ZSI\wstools\XMLSchema.py", line 
80, in loadFromNode
    schema.load(reader)
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ZSI\wstools\XMLSchema.py", line 
1116, in load
    tp.fromDom(node)
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ZSI\wstools\XMLSchema.py", line 
2271, in fromDom
    self.content.fromDom(contents[indx])
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ZSI\wstools\XMLSchema.py", line 
2328, in fromDom
    self.derivation.fromDom(i)
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ZSI\wstools\XMLSchema.py", line 
2388, in fromDom
    component = SplitQName(contents[indx].getTagName())[1]
IndexError: list index out of range

Is this a ZSI bug? Or is it something that is not implemented in ZSI yet?

Unfortunately, eBay's simple XML API is deprecated, I do not want to 
start a new project with that. Also I would not like to use MS .NET or 
Java because I prefer Python, of course. :-)

Thanks,
