Exporting and importing Web services
When a Web service is exported, the WSD file produced contains all the information needed to import the exported Web service. When an exported Web service is imported, a WSD file must be supplied to provide the information required to re-create the Web service.
Note: The WSD file contains a complete copy of the Web service properties of the original Web service. When an import is performed, the imported Web service has the same properties as the original.
An import requires the WSD file be accessible to the local machine. An export produces the WSD file accessible to the local machine—that is, the machine where OpenEdge Management/OpenEdge Explorer or the WSAMAN utility runs.
For more information exporting and importing Web services using OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, see the online help.
For more information on exporting and importing Web services using the WSAMAN utility, see Using the WSA Management Utility (WSAMAN) and Command and Utility Reference.
