Generate WSDL

If you have developed a WSDL model in UML, you can forward-engineer it into WSDL 1.1 files using the Generate WSDL feature. This feature acts on either a «WSDLnamespace» stereotyped Package or a «WSDL» stereotyped Component (Document), and generates any or all of the WSDL Components owned by the target «WSDLnamespace» structure.
