Configuring Request Attributes -- Webservice Adapter
While consuming a webservice from webfocus, is there a mechanism on webfocus to configure so that webservice request gets issued without xsd attributes to each of the element tag.
Eg: Currently after the configuration i am able to generate request as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="">
<m:ServiceInputHeader xmlns:m="http://ns/messages/2003-08">
<m:ServiceName xsi:type="xsd:string">GET_NONPAS_PROSPECT_PERID</m:ServiceName>
<m:ConsumerRole xsi:type="xsd:string">1234567890</m:ConsumerRole>
<m:TimeOut xsi:type="xsd:int">120</m:TimeOut>
<m:ReturnPerfStats xsi:type="xsd:boolean">false</m:ReturnPerfStats>
<m:ServiceVersion xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<m:SessionID xsi:type="xsd:string">0987654321</m:SessionID>
<m:CorrelationID xsi:type="xsd:string">0987654321</m:CorrelationID>
<m:GET_NONPAS_PROSPECT_PERID xmlns:m="http://ns/services/PAS3Services/2003-08">
<m:PROSPECT_ID xsi:type="xsd:string">P12456</m:PROSPECT_ID>

Now we need to turn off the xsi attributes against each of elements in soap header and body. So any direction in this regard will be of great help.
