First Example - Hello

This section provides a tutorial example on writing the very first WSDL 2.0 example that uses SOAP 1.2 over HTTP to send a hello message and receive a hello message back.

My first WSDL 20 example will be the Hello Web service with these properties:

In this WSDL example, I want to send a SOAP request with a hello message. And I expect the server to return a hello message. So I wrote this WSDL document, Hello_WSDL_20_SOAP.wsdl:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<wsdl:description xmlns:wsdl="http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl"
  xmlns:wsoap= "http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl/soap"
  xmlns:hy="http://www.herongyang.com/Service/"
  targetNamespace="http://www.herongyang.com/Service/">

      <xsd:element name="HelloResponse" type="xsd:string"/>

      <wsdl:output messageLabel="Out" 
        element="hy:HelloResponse" />
    </wsdl:operation>
  </wsdl:interface>

      wsoap:mep="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/soap-response"/>
  </wsdl:binding>

  <wsdl:service name="helloService" 
    interface="hy:helloInterface">

      binding="hy:helloBinding"

  </wsdl:service>
