3702Java support for WSDL http bindings
- Jun 5, 2003I'm new to the group and like most newbies, am full of questions.
The one most pressing to me at the moment is that, while I don't
much care for SOAP and prefer a URI-based approach to services, I do
see a need for something WSDL-like to support discovery and service
registration. What I am looking for is a Java tool that will take
in a WSDL with URL bindings and generate an easy to use interface
object to populate appropriate parameters in the http URI.
This object would provide methods
like "getParameterList", "getParameterType", "setParmeter
(parmname)", etc. Eventually, I'm looking at being able to resolve
semantic differences between the requestor's vocabulary and the
service provider vocabulary, but that's down the road.
I am happy to write the class if it doesn't already exist, but was
wondering if there were any tools out there for this sort of thing?
SOAP seems to have them (it really needs them- otherwise no one
would use it), but the URL bindings option in WSDL does not seem to
have any tool support.
Help! And does any of this make sense?
