Some third-party technologies have problems consuming web services that use WSDL internal references, such as those generated by the Verastream Host Integrator (VHI) embedded SOAP stack (version 7.0 or higher) or Web Builder-generated web service projects (version 6.6 or earlier). This technical note describes how to convert the WSDL, so the VHI web service can be successfully directly consumed.
When you are importing a web service into an older third-party technology (such as Siebel), it may present an error when it does not understand WSDL internal references. To resolve this issue, you can use a separate tool (such as Verastream Process Designer or soapUI) to convert and re-export the WSDL, then import the converted WSDL in your third-party tool.
Verastream Process Designer (VPD) is a separate product used to orchestrate multiple web services. You can download a time-limited evaluation (trial) version at http://www.attachmate.com/Evals/vpd/eval-form.htm. After installing VPD, use the following steps to convert the Verastream Host Integrator WSDL:
The soapUI open source tool is available from http://www.soapui.org/ or http://sourceforge.net/projects/soapui/. After installing soapUI, use the following steps to convert the Verastream Host Integrator WSDL:
