xs:restriction tag is not working in WSDL

Hi Friends,

I am a bit new to webservice.
I had to create a web service and provide WSDL to the client.

I need to add maxLength restriction on the fields, so that client cannot give values longer than my system can accept. So I added xs:restriction in the WSDL as follows.

But even after this, when I test the web service, I can provide any string longer than 24 characters, and webservice generates the XML and sends it to the server.

Shouldn't it, be that XML should not be generated if it violates the maxLength condition?

Please help me understanding where is the gap?

Thanks & Regards
