Importing a WSDL file

You can import WSDL files into the workbench and open them in the WSDL editor. Opening them in the WSDL editor provides you with an opportunity to have a structured viewing of the WSDL file.

The Web Service wizard assists you in creating a new Web service from a WSDL file. You must first create or import a WSDL file. A WSDL file can be created using the WSDL editor. This is described in: Creating a new WSDL file. To import a WSDL file follow the instructions below.

Prerequisite: Create a project. It is recommend that you create a Web project so that the WSDL can be easily used to generate additional artifacts and deployed.

For more information on creating a Web project, refer to the Web application development documentation.

To import a WSDL file to your Web project, complete the following steps:

  1. Select your project in the Java EE Navigator pane, and from the File menu, select Import.
  2. Select General > File System and click Next.
  3. Click Browse on the next page of the wizard to select the directories from which you would like to add the WSDL.
  4. In the import selection panes, use the following methods to select exactly the resources you want to add:
    • Expand the hierarchies in the left pane and select or clear the checkboxes that represent the folders in the selected directory. Then in the right pane, select or clear check boxes for individual files.
    • Click Filter Types to filter the current selection for files of a specific type.
    • Click Select All to select all resources in the directory, then go through and deselect the ones that you do not want to add.
    • Click Deselect All to deselect all resources in the directory, then go through and choose individual resources to add.
  5. Specify the Workbench project or folder that will be the import destination.
  6. When you have finished specifying your import options, click Finish.

Alternately, you can import a WSDL file using the WSDL Explorer. For more information, refer to: Using the WSDL Explorer.
