WSDL and DAML describe services differently.

WSDL describes the physical aspects of the service:
- What operations does the service support
- What is the structure of the messages exchanged for each operation
- How is the message encoded on the wire
- Where do you send the message

DAML describes the semantic aspects of the service:
- classify operations, messages, and types

The two are complementary.

Best regards,
Anne
