Explain what is message element in WSDL?

  • A message is protocol independent, and it describes the data being exchanged between the consumers and web service providers
  • Each web service has two messages input and output. The input determines the parameters for the web service and the output determines the return data from the web service
  • Each <message> element contains zero or more <part> parameters, one for each parameter of the web service function
  • <Part> element relates to the parameter or return value in the RPC call
  • The <part> name order reflects the order of the parameters in the RPC signature
