Editing WSDL Documents in the Master Files Context

Smaller interrelated modules that define a complex WSDL structure cannot be correctly edited or validated individually, due to their interdependency with other modules. Oxygen XML Developer plugin provides the support for defining the main module (or modules), allowing you to edit any of the imported/included files in the context of the larger WSDL structure.

You cat set a main WSDL document either using the master files support from the Navigator view, or using a validation scenario.

To set a master file using a validation scenario, add validation units that point to the main modules. Oxygen XML Developer plugin warns you if the current module is not part of the dependencies graph computed for the main WSDL document. In this case, it considers the current module as the main WSDL document.

The advantages of editing in the context of a master file include:
  • Correct validation of a module in the context of a larger WSDL structure.
  • Content Completion Assistant displays all components valid in the current context.
  • The Outline view displays the components collected from the entire WSDL structure.
Note: When you edit an XML schema document that has a WSDL document set as master, the validation operation is performed over the master WSDL document.
