"service" - Service Definition Element
This section describes 'service', a definition element that defines a service as one or multiple ports. A port defines a binding to a communication address.
"service" is a top level element of a WSDL 1.1 document.
"service" is used to define a service with one or multiple ports with "port" sub elements.
A port is defined with a given binding and a communication address with a WSDL extension.
The syntax of "service" looks like this:
<wsdl:port name="nmtoken2" binding="qname">
... extensibility elements from WSDL 1.1 extension ...
Notes on the "service" element:
- name="nmtoken1" - Provides a reference name to this service.
- name="nmtoken2" - Provides a reference name to this port.
- binding="qname" - Specifies a binding by referring to a "binding" element.
- Extensibility elements from WSDL 1.1 extensions are used to provide the address where to access the Web service.
Here is an example of "service" element:
<wsdl:port name="helloPort" binding="hy:helloBinding">
In this example,
- Service, helloService, is defined with one port, helloPort,
- Port, helloPort, is defined to provide an address for the binding, helloBinding.
- This port uses the WSDL SOAP extension to specify the communication address.
