And now a word from our sponsor: WSDL

You’ll be happy to know that a WSDL document defines the following elements for describing services:

  • Types — data type definitions
  • Message — an abstract definition of the data being transferred
  • Operation — an abstract description of a service procedure
  • Port Type — an abstract set of operations supported by one or more endpoints
  • Binding — a concrete protocol and data format for a given port type
  • Port — a single endpoint defined as a binding and a network address
  • Service — a collection of related endpoints or ports
