4.11. Web Services Description Language (WSDL)

The Web Services Description Language (WSDL) is an XML-based language that is used to define Web service interfaces. An application that consumes a Web service parses the service’s WSDL document to discover the:
  • location of the service
  • the operations that the service supports
  • the protocol bindings the service supports (SOAP, HTTP, etc)
  • access procedure
For each operation, the WSDL describes the interface format to which the client must adhere.
