Using Interface Viewer on Bindings

This section provides a tutorial example on how to use the Interface Viewer against a binding defined in a WSDL document. The overview tab gives a summary of information about the binding.

Once a WSDL document is loaded, you can use the Interface Viewer to browse any bindings defined in the WSDL document.

1. Run SoapUI and load Hello_WSDL_11_SOAP.wsdl as shown in the previous tutorial.

2. Right click on "helloBinding" binding in the project object tree and select "Show Interface Viewer". The Interface Viewer shows up with 4 tabs: Overview, Service Endpoints, WSDL Content, WS-I Compliance.

3. Click the Overview tab, properties of "helloBinding" are displayed as shown in this picture:
