Web service Description

WSDL

You can load the WSDL from an URL or from a WSDL file saved on your harddisk. After selecting an option and adding the required url or file location, press import to fetch the services/operations in this WSDL.

Starting from Modeler version 5.9, a dialog will ask for a username and password if you try to load a WSDL file from a URL that requires authentication.

A WSDL file can contain multiple services. A service can contain multiple ports. Starting from Modeler version 5.18.0, upon loading a WSDL, a dialog will ask you to select a port for each service if a service contains multiple ports.

Services

This part contains the services to be found in the WSDL.

  • Name is the name of the service.
  • Location is where the service is located.
  • Location constant can be used to add additional locations for a service, for example: the URL of the soap service may change when moving from a development to a production environment. See also Constants.

If there is a multiple-port service defined in the WSDL, a dialog will pop up that allows the user to select which one of the ports to use (Added in 5.10).

Operations

This part contains all the operations found in the WSDL. You can expand the list and see additional information about individual operations in the right pane.

Advanced Settings

Added in 5.21.4
