Generate WSDL

If you have developed a WSDL-stereotyped UML model, you can forward-engineer it into WSDL 1.1 files using the Generate WSDL feature. This feature acts either on a WSDLnamespace-stereotyped Package or a WSDL-stereotyped Component, and generates any or all of the WSDL Components owned by the target WSDLnamespace structure. You can also generate WSDL files through the Automation Interface.
