Subject WSDL validator Ant Task
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2003 20:50:12 GMT

I'm posting this message about the WSDL validation Ant Task to get some
feedback on the task and to get the task added to the list of external
tools and tasks.

The Web Service Validation Tools project ( has
a WSDL validator Ant task. This task allows validation of WSDL documents in
a similar manner as the optional XMLValidate Ant task validates XML
documents. This task will also validate against the WS-I Basic Profile 1.0.

Having correct WSDL documents is essential when publishing a Web service.
This task provides the ability to validate the WSDL documents in a project
during the build stage and fail if a file is determined to be invalid.

More information is available on the WSDL validator task at

Here is a patch for the external.xml file.

 WSDLValidate can optionally validate a WSDL document against the <a

<p>WSDLValidate is available as an Ant task, an Eclipse plug-in and a
command line utility.</p>
