Viewing the WSDL Document

The system automatically generates the WSDL document for your Web Service class. Here are the steps for viewing the document:

  1. Open your Web Service class, in this case SOAPTutorial.SOAPService, in Studio.

  2. On the Studio menu bar, click View -> Web Page. This opens the Catalog Page in a browser. This page provides a Description link which opens the WSDL in a browser. It also provides links that launch test pages for the each of the services provided by the Web service. See the note below for some qualifications regarding these test pages.

    generated description: servicetest1 20101

  3. Click the Service Description link. This opens the WSDL in a browser. The precise appearance of the WSDL depends on the browser that you are using.

    generated description: wsdl1 20101

  4. Note the URL of the WSDL in the browser's address bar. Clients of the Web Service require this URL in order to access the service. Note that the exact URL depends in part upon you Caché installation and the namespace in which you defined the service.



At this point clicking any of the test links results in a CSP error. This is because security has not been configured for the Web Application governing these web pages. To learn more about web service catalog pages, test pages and security, please read About the Catalog and Test Pages in Creating SOAP Web Services. Rather than testing the Web service from the test page, in this tutorial we will test using the Terminal.
