A Sample WSDL 2.0 Document

This section describes a sample WSDL 2.0 document, which defines a Web service, helloService, with an operation called Hello.

Here is a simple example of WSDL 2.0 document represented in XML format, 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"

    Copyright (c) 2009 HerongYang.com. All Rights Reserved.

    <xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
      <xsd:element name="Hello" type="xsd:string"/>
      <xsd:element name="HelloResponse" type="xsd:string"/>

  <wsdl:interface name="helloInterface">
    <wsdl:operation name="Hello"
      <wsdl:input messageLabel="In" element="hy:Hello"/>
      <wsdl:output messageLabel="Out" element="hy:HelloResponse"/>

  <wsdl:binding name="helloBinding"
    <wsdl:operation ref="hy:Hello"

  <wsdl:service name="helloService"
    <wsdl:endpoint name="helloEndpoint"


In this WSDL 2.0 sample document,

This sample WSDL document is also available at https://www.herongyang.com/Service/Hello_WSDL_20_SOAP.wsdl.

Note that the follow "style" attribute has been removed the operation, Hello, because the input message XML element definition does not meet the requirements of the specified style, iri. Based on WSDL 2.0 specification, message style is optional. You don't have to follow any predefined styles. Thanks to Ridita who informed me this error.
