Subject: RE: [hst] harvest list (WSDL harvest part 1)

hi, All,

Here is the first part of the harvest effort. 


<harvest name="WSDL">

WSDL is like IDL. It plays a descriptor role in the overall Web Services

Relationships with other specifications


WSDL defines
 1. abstract functionality of a service
 2. concrete details of a service description for SOAP 1.2, HTTP, and MIME

Web Services model by WSDL

Summary: http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-wsdl12-20020709/#intro

"WSDL describes Web services starting with the messages that are exchanged
between the service provider and requestor. The messages themselves are
described abstractly and then bound to a concrete network protocol and
format. A message consists of a collection of typed data items. An exchange
messages between the service provider and requestor are described as an
operation. A collection of operations is called a portType. Collections of
portTypes are grouped and called a serviceType. A service represents an
implementation of a serviceType and contains a collection of ports, where
port is an implementation of a portType, which includes all the concrete
details needed to interact with the service."

Components: requestor and provider
Connector: messages, ports.
Data element: typed data item.

Architectural concept:

1. Messages are abstract and then bound to a concrete network protocol and
message format;
2. Operation
3. PortType is a collection of operations.
4. Service type is a collection of portTypes.
