WSDL is an XML format for describing network services as a set of endpoints operating on messages containing either document-oriented or procedure-oriented information. The operations and messages are described abstractly and then bound to a concrete network protocol and message format to define an endpoint.
Importing a WSDL file or adding a reference to a SOAP endpoint is a very easy operation, but I always forget the syntax of the URL
- Right-click on the project name and select Add Web Reference;
- In Add Web Reference dialog box, type in the URL: “file://fisical_pathfilename.wsdl“.
- Type a Web reference name and click Add Reference Button
