ada2wsdl - Generate a WDSL document from an Ada package specification
ada2wsdl [options] ada_spec
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
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
Using ada2wsdl, 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 works,
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://.../.
-f Force creation of the WSDL file. Overwrite exiting file with the
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.
Generate the WSDL document into file.
-q Quiet mode (no output).
Specify the Web Service name for the WSDL document, by default
the spec package's name is used.
-v Verbose mode, display the parsed spec.
ada2wsdl does not handle constrained arrays in records.
Unbounded_String are supported with full interoperability only inside a
Only unconstrained arrays are supported.
Arrays with multiple dimensions are not supported.
