       soapsuds - Mono's Remoting Proxy Generator


       soapsuds [options] [inputs] [outputs]


       soapsuds is a tool for generating WSDL documents and client proxies for remoting services.
       A WSDL document describes the methods that a service provides together with XML schemas of
       all referenced data structures. A client proxy is a class which offers the same methods as
       the service it represents, but provides no implementation, it just forwards calls  to  the
       remote service.

       Generated  client  proxies are not strictly necessary, since the runtime can automatically
       generate proxies from the  original  service  types.  However,  it  implies  the  need  of
       distributing  the  service class to all clients. In some scenarios a better approach is to
       use soapsuds to generate a proxy class which has the same interface as  the  service,  but
       without any implementation.

       soapsuds can generate a WSDL document from a set of types specified with the option -types
       or can extract the types from an assembly specified with -inputassemblyfile.  In this last
       case, soapsuds will include schemas for all serializable classes in the WSDL document.

       Taking  as  input  a WSDL document (or anything from which such document can be generated)
       the tool can generate source code for the client proxy (using the -gc option)  or  it  can
       directly  generate  an  assembly  that  implements the proxy (with the -outputassemblyfile
       option). soapsuds will also generate fake serializable classes for all  types  defined  in
       the  schema.  However,  beware  that those classes will lack the semantics of the original
       classes, since only data structure is generated.


       The following sources are available (only one can be specified):

       -urltoschema:url -url:url
              Url from which to retrieve the WSDL document.

              Specifies types for which to generate a schema or proxy. If no service endpoint  is
              provided, the one provided with the -serviceendpoint option is used.

       -inputassemblyfile:file , -ia:file
              Assembly that contains the types to export.

       -inputschemafile:schena , -is:schema
              Schema from which to generate proxy classes.


       The following options are available:

       -inputdirectory:directory , -id:directory
              Directory where DLLs are located.

       -serviceendpoint:url , -se:url
              Url of the service to be placed in the WSDL document.


       The following output options are available (more than one can be specified):

       -outputassemblyfile:file , -oa:file
              Generates the proxy code and compiles it into an assembly with the provided name.

       -outputschemafile:file , -os:file
              Generates a WSDL document that represents the provided types.

       -generatecode , -gc
              Generates proxy source code for the provided WSDL document or types.


       The following options are available:

       -outputdirectory:directory , -od:directory
              Directory where generated files will be placed.

       -proxynamespace:namespace , -pn:namespace
              Namespace of the generated proxy.

       -nowrappedproxy , -nowp
              Do not generate a wrapped proxy.

       -wrappedproxy , -wp
              Generate a wrapped proxy.

       -strongnamefile:file , -sn:file
              Strong name file.


       The following options are available:

              Supress the startup logo.

       -u:username , -user:username
              The user name to use when connecting to the server.

       -p:password , -password:password
              The password to use when connecting to the server.

       -d:domain , -domain:domain
              The domain to use when connecting to the server.

       -httpproxyname:name , -hpn:name
              Name of the http proxy.

       -httpproxyport:port , -hpp:port
              Port of the http proxy.
