Editing WSDL files with the WSDL Editor

The WSDL editor allows you to easily and graphically create, modify, view, and validate WSDL files.

Using the WSDL editor, you can do the following:

  • Create new WSDL files
  • Validate and edit WSDL files
  • Create and delete:
    • Services: used to aggregate a set of related ports. These are the root elements of all WSDL files.
    • Ports: specify an address for a binding, thus defining a single communication endpoint.
    • Bindings: specify concrete protocol and data format specifications for the operations and messages defined by a particular port type.
    • Port types: a set of abstract operations that each refer to an input message and output messages.
    • Operations: input and output messages.
    • Messages: represent an abstract definition of the data being transmitted. A message consists of logical parts, each of which is associated with a definition within some type system.
    • Parts: a flexible mechanism for describing the logical abstract content of a message.
    • Types: describe all the data types used between the client and server. WSDL is not tied exclusively to a specific typing system, but it uses the W3C XML Schema specification as its default choice.
    • Import statements: used to associate a namespace with a document location.
  • Import existing WSDL files for structured viewing
  • Generate documentation from a WSDL document.

The WSDL support in the WSDL editor is based on the W3C Web Services Description Language (WSDL) 1.1. The WSDL specification from the W3C Web site is also used for validation.
