"service" - Service Definition Element
This section describes 'service', a definition element that defines a service as one or multiple endpoints. An endpoint defines a binding to a communication address.
"service" is a top level element of a WSDL 2.0 document.
"service" is used to define a service with one or multiple endpoints with "endpoint" sub elements
for a given interface.
An endpoint is defined with a given binding and a communication address.
The syntax of "service" looks like this:
<wsdl:service name="nmtoken1" interface="qname1">
<wsdl:endpoint name="nmtoken2" binding="qname2"
Notes on the "service" element:
- name="nmtoken1" - Provides a reference name to this service.
- name="nmtoken2" - Provides a reference name to this endpoint.
- interface="qname1" - Specifies an interface by referring to an "interface" element.
- binding="qname2" - Specifies a binding by referring to a "binding" element.
Here is an example of "service" element:
In this example,
- Service, helloService, is defined with one endpoint, helloEndpoint,
- Endpoint, helloEndpoint, is defined with a URL address for the binding, helloBinding.
