the __getTypes() function return a list of structs which represents the 
various types from the parsed WSDL.

However, the inherited attributes are not listed in the struct. It 
becomes hard to introspect a WSDL file with this __getTypes() give this 

Reproduce code:
Given this WSDL fragment:

<xs:element name="Entry" type="tns:Entry"/>
<xs:element name="ManagedEntry" type="tns:ManagedEntry"/>
<xs:complexType name="ManagedEntry">
    <xs:extension base="tns:Entry">
        <xs:element minOccurs="0" name="id" type="xs:string"/>
        <xs:element minOccurs="0" name="stringRepresentation" type="xs:string"/>
<xs:complexType name="Entry">
    <xs:element minOccurs="0" name="name" type="xs:string"/>
    <xs:element maxOccurs="unbounded" minOccurs="0" name="properties" nillable="true" type="tns:EntryProperty"/>
    <xs:element minOccurs="0" name="type" type="xs:string"/>

$client = new SoapClient("http://x.x.x.x/echo?WSDL");

Expected result:
  struct ManagedEntry {
   string id;
   string stringRepresentation;
   string name;
   EntryProperty properties;
   string type;

  struct Entry {
   string name;
   EntryProperty properties;
   string type;

Actual result:
  struct ManagedEntry {
   string id;
   string stringRepresentation;

  struct Entry {
   string name;
   EntryProperty properties;
   string type;

Perhaps a good alternative could be to add the extension information in 
the output of __getTypes().

I've same problem. I'm using a WSDL generator which read the WSDL file and the extension doesn't work. I've tried with windows PHP 5.2.17 and PHP 5.3.5. Is the problem solved on the *nix platform and not Windows?

The problem is extactly the same as described by oamblet 2008-07-01 and I didn't understand the issue is not solved in the windows version of PHP??

I can confirm this bug is still present with PHP 5.3.10 on OpenIndiana.

I've just encountered this bug/shortcoming.

Thought it deserved a "bump"

the original report from 4 years ago states this bug makes it "hard".
I think the mor accurate word is "impossible"
