SOAPWebService

Assemble and publish a SOAP web service endpoint by implementing its web methods through events using the SOAPWebService. The contract for the web service is imported via a WSDL file. The WSDL import creates one event for each web method as defined in the WSDL where each event's input contains all of the method's parameters and its output holds the value that will be returned in the web method's response.

Properties

Misc

Model WSDL

Click the Load WSDL button to import the WSDL from a URI (typically ending with ?wsdl) or a local file.

Endpoint URI

The URI location where the web service will be published. For example:
http://localhost:8023/MyService

Settings

Allows to override the default values of various settings on the binding like timeouts and message size limits.

Eg. {"SendTimeout":"00:10:00","MaxReceiveMessageSize":"1048576"}
The values above will set the operation timeout to 10 minutes (overriding the default of 1 minute), and set the maximum message size that the binding will process to 1,048,576 bytes (overriding the default of 65,536 bytes).

See Binding Settings below for the list of available settings.

Security

Security mode

The type of security to use.

Service certificate

The file path to the X.509 certificate to use to represent the service for message-level security.

Binding Settings

The following binding settings can be specified using the Settings property:

OpenTimeout

Default: 1 minute

The interval of time provided for a connection to open. This time span includes all necessary security handshakes, protocol negotiations etc.

CloseTimeout

Default: 1 minute

The interval of time provided for a connection to close. This time span includes all necessary security handshakes, protocol negotiations etc.

SendTimeout

Default: 1 minute

The interval of time provided for the entire service call to complete, from sending the request to receiving the response.

ReceiveTimeout

Default: 10 minutes

The interval of time to wait since the last message received before the connection will be dropped. Applicable only when Security mode is set to Transport or Message.

MaxReceivedMessageSize

Default: 65,536 bytes

The maximum size of received messages in bytes.

MaxBufferPoolSize

Default: 524,288 bytes

The maximum amount of memory, in bytes, allocated to the buffer manager for processing messages.

The buffer pool helps decrease the overhead due to memory allocation (and subsequent gargabe collection) while processing messages. A buffer pool size that is too small can cause degradation of performance due to extensive allocation from the CLR garbage heap.

MaxBufferSize

Default: 65,536 bytes

Available only when Security mode is set to None. Sets the maximum size, in bytes, of the buffer that receives messages from the channel.

TextEncoding

Default: UTF8

The character encoding that is used for transmitting text.
Allowed values: BigEndianUnicode, Default, Unicode, UTF32, UTF7, UTF8

TransferMode

Default: Buffered

Available only when Security mode is set to None. Selects if messages are buffered or streamed.

Allowed values: - Buffered
Request and response messages are both buffered. - Streamed
Request and response messages are both streamed. - StreamedRequest
The request message is streamed, and the response is buffered. - StreamedResponse
The request message is buffered, and the response is streamed.

MessageEncoding

Default: Text

Selects if SOAP messages are encoded as Text/XML or MTOM.

Allowed values: - Text
Encodes all values as text in the XML content using the binding's text encoding. - Mtom
Efficiently encodes all lists of bytes, adding them as binary-coded attachments referenced from the XML content.
