What does WSDL mean?

Web service description language(WSDL) was created collaboratively by IBM and Microsoft and was recommended by the W3C on June 26, 2007. It is used to describe web services and is written in XML. These descriptions include the location and methods of service. It collaborates with SOAP and UDDI to provide web services. SOAP is used to call web services listed in WSDL. A typical WSDL  contains definitions, datatypes, messages, services, bindings, target namespace, and port type information.
