WSDL Binding

A WSDL Binding element implements the operations specified by a particular «WSDLportType» stereotyped Interface and describes the message format and protocol details for the operations and messages defined by this WSDL PortType. A WSDL Binding element is represented by a «WSDLbinding» stereotyped Class.

You create a WSDL Binding element by dragging the Binding icon from the WSDL Toolbox directly onto the Bindings diagram under the Bindings Package in the WSDL Package structure.

Notes

  • A WSDL Binding must implement a WSDL PortType; therefore, WSDL PortTypes should be defined before you create WSDL Bindings
  • WSDL Bindings can only be created under the Bindings Package in the WSDL Package structure
  • The name of the WSDL Binding should be unique amongst all the WSDL Bindings within the WSDL
