Create a webservice based on a WSDL

By Fernando Sousa on 15 May 2013
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 http://external/WebserviceRoot/WebServiceName?WSDL" (

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.
