Create WSDL 1.1 Model Structure

Enterprise Architect provides the WSDL page in the Toolbox to conveniently model WSDL documents.

WSDLs, represented as Components marked with the stereotype WSDL, are contained in a WSDLnamespace stereotyped Package whose hierarchy represents the target WSDL namespace and its constituent XSD Types, Messages, PortTypes, Bindings and Services.

A sample WSDL Package structure can be created in the Project Browser, using the Namespace icon from the WSDL pages of the Toolbox. You can use this package structure as a template for developing your WSDL.

Example WSDL Package Structure:

The WSDLnamespace Package acts as a container for the WSDL Structure in Enterprise Architect. The various WSDL constructs like Messages, PortTypes, Bindings and Services should be modeled in the Messages, PortTypes, Bindings and Services Packages respectively.



A WSDLnamespace package can contain one or more WSDL stereotyped Components
A WSDL stereotyped Component can be generated as a WSDL file
