1)when we create a new project how to get WADL file name or URL or REST URL ?
in my project I found this but I am not understand from where we got this URL,is it related to license or something else ?
2)what is the difference between WSDL and WADL ?can we use WSDL in rest payload?
attached doc for reference.I just import this project and worked.
- Hi amarnath1234
A .wadl file can be considered the REST equivalent of a SOAP services .wsdl file.
The .wsdl (stands for webservices definition language) defines the listening webservice, such as method (e.g.POST,GET, etc.) along with the soap container and the SOAP services URL. A soap service doesn't use uri/template, query or header parms whereas a REST api does.
The URLS in a SOAP or REST api are determined by the developers who are defining the service/api from the requirements....its nothing to do with licensing.
I suggest reading up on REST, SOAP, .wsdl, .wadl and then come back with more questions. Restfulapi.net is a decent place to start. There's a lot of theory that you need to understand to be able to use readyapi!/soapui effectively.
check out the course available via https://community.smartbear.com/t5/SoapUI-Pro/Education-ReadyAPI-Basics-a-New-Learning-course/m-p/183573#M41974
It'll provide a nice basis of knowledge for you going forwards
