I have a small question on the portType element of a WSDL. I'm referring to the following URL,

How do they differentiate between the Operation Types? There is no mention in the portType xml element on this.

Note that the one-way operation only contains one <input> element in the <operation> element, while the request-response operation contains an <input> and an <output> element in the <operation> element. The order of the <input> and <output> elements is significant.
Best wishes!
