       wsdl2aws - Generate stubs and skeletons for web services


       wsdl2aws [options] URL


       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 wsdl2aws, you can create both the client and server sides of a Web Service.  On both
       sides, the generated code handles marshalling and unmarshalling of parameters  and  return
       values, so you do not have to deal with SOAP directly.

       The  client side is an Ada package that contains stubs for the remote subprograms declared
       by the WSDL document.  These stubs call the remote subprograms using SOAP.

       The server side is  another  package  consisting  of  skeleton  implementations  of  these

       The URL points to the WSDL document to be processed.


       -a     Generate  using  Ada  style  names.  For  example  `getPrice'  will be converted to
              `Get_Price'. This formatting is done for packages, routines and formal parameters.

       -cb    Generate a SOAP dispatcher callback routine for the server. This dispatcher routine
              contains  the  code to handle all the operations as described in the WSDL document.
              You need also to specify the -types option, see below.

       -cvs   Add CVS id tag in every generated file.

       -doc   Handle document style binding as RPC ones. This is sometimes  needed  because  some
              WSDL  documents  specify  a  document style binding even though it is really an RPC

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

       -main filename
              Specify the name of the server's procedure main to generate. If  file  filename.amt
              (Ada  Main  Template)  is  present, it uses this template file to generate the main
              procedure. The template can reference the following variable tags:

                     The name of the service as described into the WSDL document. This tag can be
                     used to include the right units

                                with @_SOAP_SERVICE_@.Client;
                                with @_SOAP_SERVICE_@.CB;

                     The AWS SOAP version.

                     The AWS version.

                     The  name of the generated unit. This is the name of the procedure that will
                     be created.

                          procedure @_UNIT_NAME_@ is

              Do not generate skeletons, only stubs.

              Do not generate stubs, only skeletons.

       -o name
              Specify the name of the local WSDL document. This option  can  be  used  only  when
              using a Web WSDL document (i.e. passing an URL to wsdl2aws).

       -pp password
              User password for the proxy if proxy authentication required.

       -proxy nameIP
              Use this proxy to access the WSDL document and generate code to access to these Web
              Services via this proxy. The proxy can be specified by its DNS name or IP address.

       -pu name
              User name for the proxy if proxy authentication required.

       -q     Quiet mode (no output).

       -s     Skip non supported SOAP routines. By default, wsdl2aws exits with an error  when  a
              problem  is  found  while  parsing the WSDL document. This option is useful to skip
              routines using non supported types and still  be  able  to  compile  the  generated

       -types spec
              Specify  the  name  of  the  spec  containing  the  Ada  implementation of the SOAP
              routines. This is used for example by the -cb option above to instantiate  all  the
              server side SOAP callbacks used by the main SOAP dispatcher routine.

       -v     Verbose mode, display the parsed spec.

       -v -v  Verbose  mode,  display  the  parsed spec and lots of information while parsing the
              WSDL document.

       -wsdl  Add WSDL document as comment into the generated root unit.
