Path 3: Using SOAP client to consume a Decision Service

Web Services Service Contracts

Web Services has two main ways of describing a service contract:
1. An XML schema document, also known by its file suffix XSD.
2. A Web Services Description Language document, or WSDL (often pronounced wiz-dull).
Many commercial SOAP and web services development tools have the ability to import an XSD or WSDL service contract and generate a compliant request message directly from it.  This path assumes you have access to such a tool and want to use it to consume a Decision Service.
The Corticon Deployment Console can produce both XSD and WSDL documents.  The Server Integration & Deployment Guide contains more information about these documents, including detailed descriptions of their structure and elements. However, if you have chosen this path, we assume you are already familiar enough with service contracts to be able to use them correctly once generated.
