Service-Oriented Architecture and Java - Service layer and Web Services Description Language (WSDL)
Following up on the series "SOA and Java" where we analyze the technologies available in the Java space to build service-oriented applications, let us look at the service description of the Service Layer among the different layers of Service Oriented Applications.
The most important aspect of a service is the service description. When Web Services is used as the implementation technology for SOA, the messages and operations of the web service is described by Web Services Description Language (WSDL).
Shown below is an example of the WSDL for the “Time Service” web service which includes the port, operations, and message types.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
<definitions name="MyTimeService" 
<message name="TimeService_getDateTime">
<part name="String_1" type="xsd:string"/></message>
<message name="TimeService_getDateTimeResponse">
<part name="result" type="xsd:string"/></message>
<portType name="TimeService">
<operation name="getDateTime" parameterOrder="String_1">
<input message="tns:TimeService_getDateTime"/>
<output message="tns:TimeService_getDateTimeResponse"/>
<binding name="TimeServiceBinding" type="tns:TimeService">
<operation name="getDateTime">
<soap:operation soapAction=""/></operation>
  transport="" style="rpc"/>
<service name="MyTimeService">
  <soap:address location="REPLACE_WITH_ACTUAL_URL"/>
Regardless of whether the Web Service based on the above WSDL is built using .Net technology or Java technology, it must support the operations and messages described in the WSDL.
