Create a webservice based on a WSDL

Not right now

Many times we have to create a web service in an extension according to a specific WSDL document, which then invokes an eSpace action or "internal" web service. We'd like to avoid this types of implementations in the near future...

I do not understand what the idea is exactly.

there is no need of an extension(?)

We would like to have the ability to create a web service (server) in Service Studio based on an external WSDL.

Something like you get when using command line "wsdl.exe /server https://external/WebserviceRoot/WebServiceName?WSDL" (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/7h3ystb6%28v=vs.80%29.aspx)

In order to acomplish this today, what we have to do is generate the web service class with the tool mentioned above, include it in an extension, and use the extension to call an internal (eSpace) web service or action.

Hi Fernando,

Sorry for the late reply, but we are not planning on delivering this in the near future.

The investment to do this properly is too big for the return and for the upcoming new features that we have in mind. Because of this, I’m marking this idea as “not right now”.

Nonetheless, thank you very much for your idea and keep it coming.

If you believe we missed some context that would change our perception about it, please give us more details about why you would need this and for what is the use case.
