SYNOPSIS

soapsuds [options] [inputs] [outputs]

DESCRIPTION

soapsuds is a tool for generating WSDL documents and client proxies for remoting services. A WSDL document describes the methods that a service provides together with XML schemas of all referenced data structures. A client proxy is a class which offers the same methods as the service it represents, but provides no implementation, it just forwards calls to the remote service.

Generated client proxies are not strictly necessary, since the runtime can automatically generate proxies from the original service types. However, it implies the need of distributing the service class to all clients. In some scenarios a better approach is to use soapsuds to generate a proxy class which has the same interface as the service, but without any implementation.

soapsuds can generate a WSDL document from a set of types specified with the option -types or can extract the types from an assembly specified with -inputassemblyfile. In this last case, soapsuds will include schemas for all serializable classes in the WSDL document.

Taking as input a WSDL document (or anything from which such document can be generated) the tool can generate source code for the client proxy (using the -gc option) or it can directly generate an assembly that implements the proxy (with the -outputassemblyfile option). soapsuds will also generate fake serializable classes for all types defined in the schema. However, beware that those classes will lack the semantics of the original classes, since only data structure is generated.

INPUT SOURCES

The following sources are available (only one can be specified):
-urltoschema:url -url:url
  Url from which to retrieve the WSDL document.
-types:type1,assembly[,serviceEndPoint][;type2,assembly[,serviceEndPoint]]...
  Specifies types for which to generate a schema or proxy. If no service endpoint is provided, the one provided with the -serviceendpoint option is used.
-inputassemblyfile:file , -ia:file
  Assembly that contains the types to export.
-inputschemafile:schena , -is:schema
  Schema from which to generate proxy classes.

INPUT OPTIONS

The following options are available:
-inputdirectory:directory , -id:directory
  Directory where DLLs are located.
-serviceendpoint:url , -se:url
  Url of the service to be placed in the WSDL document.

OUTPUTS

The following output options are available (more than one can be specified):
-outputassemblyfile:file , -oa:file
  Generates the proxy code and compiles it into an assembly with the provided name.
-outputschemafile:file , -os:file
  Generates a WSDL document that represents the provided types.
-generatecode , -gc
  Generates proxy source code for the provided WSDL document or types.

OUTPUT OPTIONS

The following options are available:
-outputdirectory:directory , -od:directory
  Directory where generated files will be placed.
-proxynamespace:namespace , -pn:namespace
  Namespace of the generated proxy.
-nowrappedproxy , -nowp
  Do not generate a wrapped proxy.
-wrappedproxy , -wp
  Generate a wrapped proxy.
-strongnamefile:file , -sn:file
  Strong name file.

GENERAL OPTIONS

The following options are available:
-nologo
  Supress the startup logo.
-u:username , -user:username
  The user name to use when connecting to the server.
-p:password , -password:password
  The password to use when connecting to the server.
-d:domain , -domain:domain
  The domain to use when connecting to the server.
-httpproxyname:name , -hpn:name
  Name of the http proxy.
-httpproxyport:port , -hpp:port
  Port of the http proxy.
