       ada2wsdl - Generate a WDSL document from an Ada package specification


       ada2wsdl [options] ada_spec


       The  Ada  Web  Server  is  a  library  that allows you to embed a web server into your Ada
       application.  It provides not only HTTP but also SOAP, WSDL and several other  facilities.
       Thus you can write full-fledged web applications.

       WSDL  (Web  Service  Definition  Language)  is  a  language  based on XML.  WSDL documents
       describe, in a formal way, the interface to Web Services. This description consists of the
       end-point  (URL  to  the  server offering the service), the SOAPAction (needed to call the
       remote procedure), the  procedure  names  and  a  description  of  the  input  and  output

       Using  ada2wsdl, you can create a WSDL document that describes Web Services provided by an
       Ada package.  ada2wsdl uses ASIS to parse your Ada package specification, and generates  a
       WSDL  document  by  mapping  Ada  types  to  Web  Services  types,  and Ada subprograms to

       Please see the AWS User's guide for more details on how ada2wsdl works, and  how  you  can
       use it to develop web services.


       -a url Specify  the URL for the Web Server address. Web Services will be available at this
              address. A port can be specified on  the  URL,  http://server[:port].  The  default
              value is http://.../.

       -f     Force creation of the WSDL file. Overwrite exiting file with the same name.

       -I path
              Add path option for the ASIS compilation step. This option can appear any number of
              time on the command line.

              Do not generate WSDL representation for Ada  enumerations,  map  them  to  standard

       -o file
              Generate the WSDL document into file.

       -q     Quiet mode (no output).

       -s name
              Specify  the  Web Service name for the WSDL document, by default the spec package's
              name is used.

       -v     Verbose mode, display the parsed spec.


       ada2wsdl does not handle constrained arrays in records.

       Unbounded_String are supported with full interoperability only inside a record.

       Only unconstrained arrays are supported.

       Arrays with multiple dimensions are not supported.
