WSDL Editor for OxygenXML

Post by csalsa » Mon Feb 14, 2011 8:46 am

Hi

I would very much, as a service developer, like OxygenXML to have a WSDL editor. It can currently edit WSDL files as an XML editor but it knows nothing of WSDL syntax and validation. Much of the work for this function is already available.

What is needed is:
1. A context sensitives view for editing and mapping WSDL artifacts such as portTypes, bindings, faults and operations.

2. A WSDL documentation generator that can produce HTML files for a set of services (think of JavaDoc for WSDL).

3. A WSDL validator to test compliance to WSDL 1.x and 2.x as well as compliance to WS-I.

Hi,

Thanks for the feature requests.
I admit the WSDL development has been lagging behind.
We already had improvement suggestions for each of these requests and I'll update the post when any of these becomes available.
We already have a WSDL documentation generator action available on the toolbar and in the Tools menu (which is actually based on an XSLT stylesheet which gets applied on the WSDL file and can be modified) so it would be great if you could tell us some precise improvement requests in this regard.
A copy of the XSLT used to generate WSDL documentation can be found here:
OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR/frameworks/wsdl/doc-generator.xsl

And you can modify and apply it directly on the WSDL file.

Regards,
Radu

Hi Radu

Thanks for your response. The documentation feature is not as important as a context sensitive editor and compliance checker.


WSDL Documenter
I will look at the documentation XSL you described but it will be of limited use to me. What I mean is, using my JavaDoc example, is JavaDoc creates an integrated table of contents and search function for all Java types. It does create a set of unrelated webpages which is what I have running the XSL file across a set of WSDL files.

Ideally the WSDL generated documentation be generated as part of a continuous build and hosted inside a website.

Hi

Is there any indication you can give to me as to when OxygenXML might have a WSDL Editor?

I am being asked hard questions as to why I would chose a tool for web service development that does not have a WSDL Editor and WSDL test/compliance checks. All I could say was that it was not a criterion at the time I conducted tool selection.

Hi,

It's currently scheduled for Oxygen 13 but I can give you no guarantees.
I think that it's more probable that we'll first implement the WS-I compliance tests.

Hi,

In Oxygen 13 we added better validation checks for WSDL 1.1 files according to the WSDL specification.

Are there plans to implement a WSDL editor as described in the initial post of this thread? It would be very helpful. Thanks.

Hello,

Oxygen v15 (coming soon) will have a lot of WSDL features and improvements for editing and validation. These will continue to be added/improved in v15.1 and v15.2.

You may want to join the Oxygen user-list for announcements, polls and beta availability.
