WSDL generation for Service SOAP rules


After you have created all the Service SOAP rules that are to be included in a service package, generate WSDL files that describe the services in the package. Then, you can copy the generated WSDL files to the system on which you are developing the SOAP client and use it to create your SOAP client application.

Open the service package data instance to create a WSDL file. You can copy this file to the client (calling) system to support deployment. For more information, see Service Package form - Completing the Context tab.

Although SOAP services support the nillable attribute, the WSDL file that Pega Platform generates does not include any nillable attributes. If required, edit the WSDL file to include an attribute similar to the following:
<xsd:elementname="shipDate" type="xsd:date" nillable="true" />

Pega Platform can process a SOAP message that contains:

<shipDate xsi:nil="true"></shipDate>
