ada2wsdl - Generate a WDSL document from an Ada package specification
The Ada Web Server is a library that allows you to embed a web server into your
Ada application. It provides not only HTTP but also SOAP, WSDL and several
other facilities. Thus you can write full-fledged web applications.
WSDL (Web Service Definition Language) is a language based on XML. WSDL
documents describe, in a formal way, the interface to Web Services. This
description consists of the end-point (URL to the server offering the
service), the SOAPAction (needed to call the remote procedure), the procedure
names and a description of the input and output parameters.
, you can create a WSDL document that describes Web
Services provided by an Ada package. ada2wsdl
uses ASIS to parse your
Ada package specification, and generates a WSDL document by mapping Ada types
to Web Services types, and Ada subprograms to operations.
Please see the AWS User's guide for more details on how ada2wsdl
and how you can use it to develop web services.
- -a url
- Specify the URL for the Web Server address. Web Services
will be available at this address. A port can be specified on the URL,
http://server[:port]. The default value is http://.../.
- Force creation of the WSDL file. Overwrite exiting file
with the same name.
- -I path
- Add path option for the ASIS compilation step. This option
can appear any number of time on the command line.
- Do not generate WSDL representation for Ada enumerations,
map them to standard string.
- -o file
- Generate the WSDL document into file.
- Quiet mode (no output).
- -s name
- Specify the Web Service name for the WSDL document, by
default the spec package's name is used.
- Verbose mode, display the parsed spec.
