Creating SOAP Project with WSDL
This section provides a tutorial example on how to create SOAP project automatically by loading a WSDL document URL.
If you have a SOAP Web service that is defined in a WSDL document, you can use SoapUI to load the WSDL document and automatically create a new project with SOAP request templates to test the Web service.
Here is what I did to load a sample WSDL document, Hello_WSDL_11_SOAP.wsdl into SoapUI 5.2 and let it creating a project automatically to test a SOAP Web service:
1. Run SoapUI and click "File" > "New SOAP Project". You will see the "New SOAP Project" dialog box.
2. On the dialog box, enter these values:
Project Name: HelloSOAP Initial WSDL: http://www.herongyang.com/Service/Hello_WSDL_11_SOAP.wsdl Create Requests: checked Create TestSuite: checked Relative Paths: unchecked
3. Click OK. SoapUI load the specified WSDL document.
4. When loading is done, SoapUI will prompt to ask for confirmation to create TestSuite.
5. Click "OK" to confirm and take the default TestSuite name.
When the TestSuite is created, you will see two items displayed under the "HelloSOAP" project:
The picture below shows the "HelloSOAP" project generated by loading a WSDL document that defines a SOAP Web service. The request template "Request 1" is open on the right side of the window.
