wsdl(1) Mono's Web Service Proxy Generator


wsdl [options] [path | url]


wsdl is a tool for generating proxy classes that can be used to access to web services. The tool reads a WSDL document from the provided path or url, and downloads referenced schemas or other WSDL documents if needed.

This tool is used to target the 1.x API, for targetting the 2.x API, please use the wsdl2 tool.


The following options are available:
-appsettingurlkey:key -urlkey:key
Specifies that the url for the services should be read from the <appsettings> section of the configuration file, using the provided key.
-appsettingbaseurl:url, -baseurl:url
Specifies a base URL for the service. The final URL will be constructed by combining this value with the URL read from the -appsettingurlkey option, and the -type:typename, assembly Generate a proxy for a compiled web service class. The URL parameter can be used to providethe location of the service. location attribute specified in the WSDL document.
-language:language, -l
