Hello all,

I am pretty experienced in java but very new on webservices so if I ask a stupid question forgive me please and do not be hard on me.

The question I have is the following:

We got from a customer of us the wsdl files in a web-service situation where uddi is not used. It is easy for me to generate a soap client. Is it possible to obtain online more information about what each procedure and parameter in the wsdl (defined in the types, means or do I need the design of the web-service for that. Our customer did not give us that yet.

e.g suppose that the porttype give us a class with an operation as a method, I would like more info about what that method does and even more how the return value (his out message, that I get back) must be interpreted.

regards,

Ronald

Probably not. In production settings, even the automatic generation of the WSDL is usually turned off. But your customer would know those details, wouldn't he
