Vel didn't say that the "WSDL URI" was the URI for the WSDL namespace...

If the URI is actually the URL of the WSDL file, then you can do an HTTP
GET, and you will get the WSDL document. The WSDL document is an XML
document. You can display/print it and read it. You can parse it with an XML
parser. You can navigate it with XPath. You can access and manipulate it
using a WSDL API such as JWSDL.

What information are you looking for, and for what purpose?

  The W3C TAG [1] has an issue [2] to come up with a recommendation for what
sort of document should be served if you do an HTTP GET on an XML Namespace
URI. You might imagine that the URI could resolve to the WSDL file itself,
but since it's an XML Namespace, there might be other documents that are
also associated with that namespace, e.g., an XML Schema.

it, how do I proceed ?



  thanks.
