Hello Ranchers,

I have created one web service demo application and application is running successfully as i am getting text "And now... Some Services" on my browser, when i hit web service url on browser.

Cool i am happy to see my web service is up and running as per document in url- http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/websphere/techjournal/0404_bose/0404_bose.html

my question here are --

- Where this text ("And now... Some Services") come from, how i can track it and change it if i want.
- If i append text "?wsdl" in my web service url, i get all wsdl document copy on my browser ,,,, how i am getting this enternally....what process happen enternally to get wsdl.

Please help me to dig out the hidden behaviour of web sphere.

Thanks in advance.

That behavior is non-standard and specific to WebSphere.
SOAP web services typically do not respond to HTTP GET requests from browsers - they only respond to a SOAP request that is in the body of an HTTP POST request as it is issued by a SOAP service consumer.

If i append text "?wsdl" in my web service url, i get all wsdl document copy on my browser


That is just an established convention for publishing the web service contract. If the web service endpoint is deployed at http://www.example.com/services/endpoint then often the web services contract (WSDL) can be retrieved at http://www.example.com/services/endpoint?wsdl with an HTTP GET (i.e. a browser can do it). The actual WSDL is often generated by environment hosting the endpoint, though a static copy could be just as easily be stored somewhere else.
