Tools for building Web services in .NET

Two new tools for building WS-I BP 1.0 compliant Web services in .NET

WebServiceStudio 2.0

.NET Webservice Studio is a tool to invoke webmethods interactively. The user can provide a WSDL endpoint. On clicking button Get the tool fetches the WSDL, generates .NET proxy from the WSDL and displays the list of methods available. The user can choose any method and provide the required input parameters. On clicking Invoke the SOAP request is sent to the server and the response is parsed to display the return value.

WSDL Verification tool

The WSDL Verification is an Xml Web service that accepts as input a URL that points to a wsdl file. This service will then use the .Net Framework to verify that the wsdl file is valid according to the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) 1.1. If the verification succeeds the service will return a generated proxy that is being described by the input wsdl file.

      WSDL Browser tool

       This Web Services Browser allows you to inspect the WSDL description of a service, review its operations, and automatically generates SOAP request / response messages that can be used to call the service. This web based tool provides a very simple way to review and perform simple tests on a live Web Service with out writing any code at all.
