Step 1: Viewing the WSDL and Schema

Step 1: Viewing the WSDL and Schema

A Web Services Description Language (WSDL) file describes business operations that are invoked to carry out the activities of a BPEL process. WSDL files, and the schema types and elements they import, are required in order to create a valid executable BPEL file. A good practice is to include your business partners' WSDL and schema files in your orchestration project so that you can easily move the files in the project to a deployment package.
If you do not have access to WSDL files, you can create them in Process Developer.
Normally you would create an orchestration project folder and import (or create) WSDL files into it. To save time, the WSDL files are already imported, as shown in the following illustration:
The WSDL and schema file definitions are as follows:
loanRequest.xsd
Schema that defines the data types used in messages. The schema is imported into
loanMessages.wsdl
.
loanApproval.wsdl
WSDL describing the approve operation for the loan approver partner service. The service is invoked to approve or deny requests for large loans.
loanMessages.wsdl
WSDL containing the message definitions for data exchanged among the service partners. This WSDL is imported by the other WSDLs.
loanProcess.wsdl
WSDL for the participation of the BPEL process itself, describing the request operation. The BPEL process starts by receiving a loan applicant's request for a loan.
riskAssessment.wsdl
WSDL describing the check operation for the risk assessment partner service. The service is invoked to check the risk level of an applicant applying for a small loan.
