To follow along with the example, in this step and throughout the cards, enter values as shown in the instructions. Then you will be able to follow the steps in the cue cards exactly as written.
A WSDL (Web Service Description Language) document is written in XML syntax format. A WSDL document describes a web service and the operations (methods) the service exposes through a set of definitions.
When you click
OK in the Create WSDL Document dialog, JDeveloper will create an outline of the WSDL document and display the document in the WSDL visual editor. The default file extension for a WSDL document is
In the example, you will create the WSDL definition of a service that supports one operation called
processRating, deployed using the SOAP 1.2 protocol over HTTP. The request takes a number input of type
String, and returns the rating as an integer.
You will use JDeveloper's integrated tools, namely, the WSDL visual editor, Structure window, and Property Inspector to create the definitions in the WSDL document. In the document, you will define the service interface by:
Before you start defining the WSDL document, you will create an XML schema document using sample code, which you will do in the next step. The XML schema contains two data elements (
rating) that will be used as input/output variables in the WSDL.
After creating the XML schema, you will import the schema into the WSDL to begin defining the service.
