WSDL Service

A WSDL Service is represented by a «WSDLservice» stereotyped Interface; it describes a collection of Ports that expose a particular Binding. You can create a WSDL Service element by dragging the Service icon from the WSDL Toolbox and dropping it directly onto a diagram in the Services Package of your WSDL model.

When you save a newly-created «WSDLservice» stereotyped Interface, the system:

  1. Adds the WSDL Binding elements exposed by the WSDL Service to the Service diagram.
  2. Draws an Association connector from the Service element to each Binding element.
  3. Labels each connector with the corresponding Port name.
