WSDL Document

A WSDL Document encapsulates a Web Service defined within the «WSDLnamespace» stereotyped Package, and is the source from which the WSDL file is generated. It is represented by a «WSDL» stereotyped Component element as a direct child element of the «WSDLnamespace» stereotyped Package. You can have multiple WSDL Documents under a single WSDL Namespace, to reuse and expose the WSDL Services for that namespace across multiple WSDLs.

One «WSDL» stereotyped Component element is automatically created when you create the Namespace package structure. You can add further WSDL elements by dragging the WSDL icon from the WSDL Toolbox and dropping it directly onto the namespace Overview diagram.
