Example: WSDL FileLocate this document in the navigation structure


The diagrams below illustrate components of a WSDL file. A WSDL file requires both the Web service interface and the access description. These areas are handled separately because they are defined at different times: the Web service interface is defined and supplied by SAP; while the access description is dependent on specific company data and is therefore created at a later time.

Figure 1: Web Service Interface (IDL)
  1. Data type and structure description (XML schema)

  2. Name of the message

  3. Name of the port type (definition of the interface for input/output message)

Figure 2: Access Description (Technical Information for Communication)
  1. Binding: Connection between the interface and the structure of the message (SOAP) and additional communication data if necessary (user, password, etc.)

  2. Service: Specification of the message recipient by URL
