Import WSDL

The WSDL Import facility is used to reverse engineer WSDL files into UML Class models.


Enterprise Architect cannot import a WSDL file that references WSDL constructs existing outside the target file. For example, Enterprise Architect can import a WSDL as shown in but not a file as shown in Attempting to import the second WSDL file would result in the following error message:

Cannot Import Split Files.

To avoid this limitation, combine the split WSDL files into a single file and then import it into Enterprise Architect.

To import a WSDL file, follow the steps below:

  1. In the Project Browser, right-click on the package to contain the imported WSDL package. The context menu displays.
  2. Select the Code Engineering | Import WSDL menu option. The Import WSDL dialog displays.
    import wsdl
  3. In the Filename field, select the input file.
  4. The Target Package field is automatically set to the name of the selected input file. If required, change this name.
  5. Click on the Import button to import the schema.
  6. The progress of the WSDL import is shown in the Progress status bar.
