Can A Service Model Reference Another Service Model?

I'm very new to WSSF so sorry if this is a naive question.

A Service Model can reference types defined in a separate Data Model. Can a Service Model reference types defined in a separateService Model?

For example, suppose I want to define a bunch of operations in Model1, a bunch of service contracts in Model2, and a bunch of services in Model3. Can a service contract in Model2 include operations that are defined in Model1? Can a service defined in Model3 implement contracts defined in Model2? If the answer is Yes, how is it done? I don't see a way to make one Service Contract reference types in another one.

Thanks,

I'm affraid this is not possible. The only thing that you would be able to share from the service model are the messages of you use XSD messages.

Hope it helps,
