Exporting WSDL as image [message #199990] Wed, 19 September 2007 04:13 Go to next message

I'm using Eclipse 3.2.2 with WTP to edit a WSDL file which works like a
charm.

But for documenting purposes I want a graphic representation (=picture)
that covers my whole WSDL file. Right now I use the WSDL editor of Eclipse
WTP in design mode and make a screenshot (in Eclipse 3.3 it can export it
as an image). A procedure I have to repeat for each type in my schema. And
then I have to "glue" the picture together in a image editor (paint) to
get on big picture that contains the "service" and all "Inline Schema"
views.

Is there a way to do this in one step without using paint to glue the
screenshots together? I only want the things that are visible in the
design view for every service/type in my WSDL file.

I tried some XSL files but none of them are able to visualize the WSDL
file like the WSDL editor of Eclipse WTP.

Any suggestions?

If you're interested in writing some code you can achieve this
programatically. We do something similar in IBM's RAD product when
we generate our HTML documentation (and images) for the WSDL and all the
element/type that it uses. It's definitely not 'simple' so you'd need to
make a judgement call to figure out what's easier... writing the code to
automate of just manually clicking and generating.
