WSDL Questions and Answers

Explain what does the “types” define in WSDL?

  • The type element defines all the data types used between the server and the client
  • To define data types WSDL uses the W3C XML Schema Specification as its default choice
  • Type element is not required if the service uses only simple XML schema types like integers and strings
  • To reuse the type with multiple web services, WSDL allows to define types in a separate elements
