WSDL-Based Web Services
This topic describes how to add to a mapping a call to a WSDL-style Web service. For instructions about adding a generic Web service to the mapping, see Adding a Web Service Call (REST-Style).
Before adding a WSDL-style Web service call to the mapping area, make sure that you have the Web Service Definition Language (.wsdl) that describes the Web service to which you are attempting to connect.
To add a call to a WSDL-style Web service:
1.On the Insert menu, click Web Service Function. (Alternatively, click the Insert Web service function toolbar button).
2.Under Service Definition, click WSDL if this option is not already selected.
3.Under WSDL Settings, click Browse and select the Web Service Definition Language (.wsdl) file. Two sample .wsdl files are available in the MapForce Example folder, one for each version of WSDL (1.0 and 2.0). The corresponding paths are as follows: <Documents>\Altova\MapForce2024\MapForceExamples\TimeService\TimeService.wsdl and <Documents>\Altova\MapForce2024\MapForceExamples\TimeServiceWsdl2\TimeService20.wsdl.
4.If the .wsdl file defines multiple services, operations, and endpoints, click Choose and select the required options.
5.If necessary, define other settings as required (see Web Service Call Settings).
