WSDL Message Part

A WSDL Message Part is the segment of a WSDL Message that identifies the XSD data type of the data communicated by the Message. If a Message communicates data of more than one data type, each data type is identified in a separate Message Part.

In Enterprise Architect, a WSDL Message Part is represented by a UML attribute of the WSDL Message Class. You can create the Message Part attribute by  dragging the Message Part icon from the WSDL Toolbox and dropping it onto a «WSDLmessage» stereotyped Class.
