I am trying to generate  a server interface for a wsdl document that was given to me.  I tried a sample off the web and it give me the same error:

DOS> wsdl /l:cs /si /o:hello.cs hello.wsdl

Microsoft (R) Web Services Description Language Utility
[Microsoft (R) .NET Framework, Version 2.0.50727.42]
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Error: There is an error in XML document (2, 2).
  - <description xmlns='http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl'> was not expected.

Here is a fragment of hello.wsdl.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<wsdl:description xmlns:wsdl="http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl"
  xmlns:wsoap= "http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl/soap"
  xmlns:hy="http://www.herongyang.com/Service/"
  targetNamespace="http://www.herongyang.com/Service/">

  <wsdl:documentation>
    Hello_WSDL_20_SOAP.wsdl
  </wsdl:documentation>

  <wsdl:types>
  </wsdl:types>
</wsdl:description>

It gets the same error with or without the wsdl: prefix.

Thanks.

First of all, I'm a PHP developer. I use SOAP and WSDL a lot, but I don't know the specifics for .net, but here goes.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/7h3ystb6(VS.71).aspx has the documentation regarding wsdl.exe

I couldn't see /si as an option. /server (to generate abstract server classes - as compared to the normal client classes).

As a PHP user I use a similar wsdl2php (from sourceforge - and with some amendments - see RazorsEdgeUK mods on this project).

OK, not a huge benefit to you, other than perhaps making sure the XML file is valid.

Can you try wsdl against http:// services. bandvulc. co. uk/ Authentication? wsdl (remove spaces).

This is used by my clients, some of which are .net users (I think we have around 80 of them, about 200 Java and 100 or so .PHP users).

If you get the same errors, then it must be something your end that is going on. Or the tool.



Hmmmm...

2.0 though.


2.0 is not yet standardised. V1.1 is much more widespread.

I wonder if the tool you are using is not geared to 2.0 yet?

I tried the tool (wsdlexe from visual studio 2008) using the wsdl above.  It gave me the warnings below, but it also created the client and the server code.  The errors were:

Writing file 'Camelot_AuthenticationService.cs'.

Not sure about those errors. I don't know if the errors are important. As it just a warning, it may be OK.

But it shows the use of wsdl.

What is the address of the WSDL file you've been given?

The wsdl file that was given to me is not associated with a webservice address.  I think it was created by hand.  I downloaded a third party tool that is able to create the files so I think my problem is solved.

Thanks for your help.

The solution gave me ideas on how to approach the problem, but did not actually resolve it.
Third party tools, Altova Xml Spy and MapForce generated the files that I needed.
