wsdl - Mono's Web Service Proxy Generator


   wsdl [options] [path | url]


   wsdl  is a tool for generating proxy classes that can be used to access
   to web services.  The tool reads a WSDL document from the provided path
   or  url,  and  downloads  referenced schemas or other WSDL documents if

   This tool is used to target the 1.x API, for targetting  the  2.x  API,
   please use the wsdl2 tool.


   The following options are available:

   -appsettingurlkey:key -urlkey:key
          Specifies  that the url for the services should be read from the
          <appsettings> section  of  the  configuration  file,  using  the
          provided key.

   -appsettingbaseurl:url , -baseurl:url
          Specifies  a  base  URL  for  the service. The final URL will be
          constructed by combining this value with the URL read  from  the
          -appsettingurlkey   option,  and  the  -type:typename,  assembly
          Generate a proxy for a  compiled  web  service  class.  The  URL
          parameter  can  be  used  to providethe location of the service.
          location attribute specified in the WSDL document.

   -language:language , -l
          Language of the code to generate. It can be CS for C# (default),
          Boo for Boo and VB for Visual.Basic.

   Alternatively you can specify a full type name for a CodeProvider, for
          example,  you  could use this to generate code for the imaginary
          "MyLan" language which has the following full type:
               wsdl myservice.wsdl -language:MyLan.MyLanCodeProvider, MyLan.CodeDom, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=xxyy'

   -namespace:name , -n:name
          The namespace of the generated classes. If  none  is  specified,
          the default namespace is used.

   -out:filename , -o:filename
          The target file for generated code.

   -protocol:protocol , -p:protocol
          The  protocol  for  which  to  generate  code.  It  can  be Soap
          (default), HttpGet or HttpPost.

          This  will  display  XML  request  and  reply  of   the   sample
          invocations  to  that  SOAP message.  You can use the -protocol:
          option to render the message in different forms.

          Generate a server skeleton instead of a client proxy.

          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.
