Hi, I am new to SOAPUI and trying to follow instructions "Your First SoapUI Project" at http://www.soapui.org/getting-started/your-first-soapui-project.html, the wsdl is not available anymore and getting this message in SoapUI

 

Error Loading WSDL

Re: Your First SoapUI Project tutorial - WSDL loading does not work

Hi,

 

It seems that someone has fixed the wiki page (http://www.soapui.org/getting-started/your-first-soapui-project.html) since you went on it at the top and added two replacement examples presumably for the missing one you tried:

 

Note: The WSDL referenced in step 2 of this tutorial has been removed. Please use one of the following WSDL URLs instead:
http://wsf.cdyne.com/WeatherWS/Weather.asmx?WSDL

http://www.webservicex.com/currencyconvertor.asmx?WSDL

 

Hope this helps,

Re: Your First SoapUI Project tutorial - WSDL loading does not work

Just as an note on this particular error message, it case it saves anyone else any time (and because I was investigating another post reporting the same error message).

 

It seems that SoapUI can display this error message:

 

Error loading [http://www.mobilefish.com/services/web_service/countries.php?wsdl]: org.apache.xmlbeans.XmlException: org.apache.xmlbeans.XmlException: error: Reference to undefined entity: nbsp

 

presumably because it is trying to interpret (as a WSDL) the resulting HTML page that is displayed when the missing WSDL (in this case http://www.mobilefish.com/services/web_service/cou ntries.php?wsdl) redirects. I think it may also happen when the WSDL is available but happens to contain imports/includes a scheama that cannot be found.

 

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Rupert

The following URLs does not work for me: Error loading WSDL. Failed to load url:

 

Note: The WSDL referenced in step 2 of this tutorial has been removed. Please use one of the following WSDL URLs instead:
http://wsf.cdyne.com/WeatherWS/Weather.asmx?WSDL

Any new URLs for begginers? Workaround?

 

Thanks,

My workaround is to open this URL in IE and save as file locally. Then just browse for the WSDL location. It loaded fine.

Re: Your First SoapUI Project tutorial - WSDL loading does not work

Hi,

 

I am trying out SOAP UI tutorial mentioned above. The currency converter WSDL seems to load fine, however when I run the test the response message comes back with a "-1" response for the conversion rate and no actual rate is returned. There is no error message or anything. I have tried many different pairs of currencies but I get the same response. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Uma
