WSDL - <ports> Element
A <port> element defines an individual endpoint by specifying a single address for a binding.
Here is the grammar to specify a port −
<wsdl:definitions .... > <wsdl:service .... > * <wsdl:port name = "nmtoken" binding = "qname"> * <-- extensibility element (1) --> </wsdl:port> </wsdl:service> </wsdl:definitions>
The port element has two attributes: name and binding .
The name attribute provides a unique name among all ports defined within the enclosing WSDL document.
The binding attribute refers to the binding using the linking rules defined by WSDL.
Binding extensibility elements are used to specify the address information for the port.
A port MUST NOT specify more than one address.
A port MUST NOT specify any binding information other than address information.
Here is a piece of code from the Example chapter −
<service name = "Hello_Service"> <documentation>WSDL File for HelloService</documentation> <port binding = "tns:Hello_Binding" name = "Hello_Port"> <soap:address location = "http://www.examples.com/SayHello/"> </port> </service>
