Validating and Inspecting WSDL Documents

This section provides a tutorial example on validating and inspecting a WSDL 1.1 document using soapUI 3.0.1

One important function of soapUI is to validate and inspect WSDL documents. Here is what I did to validate and inspect my first WSDL document, Hello_WSDL_11_SOAP.wsdl.

1. Run soapUI and click "File" > "New soapUI Project"

2. On the dialog box, enter these values:

Project Name: helloProject
Initial WSDL/WADL: \herong\Hello_WSDL_11_SOAP.wdsl
Create Requests: unchecked
Create TestSuite: unchecked
Create MockService: unchecked
Add REST Service: unchecked
Relative Paths: unchecked

3. Click OK. soapUI will validate and import the specified WSDL document.

4. When importing is done, "helloProject" is created and displayed on the left of the windows. There should be no importing error, because Hello_WSDL_11_SOAP.wsdl is valid WSDL document.

5. Click on "helloBinding" inside "helloProject", binding properties show up. "SOAP Version: SOAP 1.1" in the properties list confirms that I am using the SOAP 1.1 binding.

5. Click on "Hello" inside "helloBinding", operation properties show up:

Operation: Hello
Style: Document
Type: Request-Response
Input: helloInput
Output: helloOutput
Sends Attachments: false
Receives Attachments: false

Very nice. My Hello_WSDL_11_SOAP.wdsl has been validated and imported correctly. soapUI allows you to inspect binding properties and operation properties.
