Web service consuming error - Virtual interface method not supported

Dear experts,

I have an SAP web service created from a function group that includes 2 function modules. The consumer of the web service is an application external to SAP and communication takes place using SSL. Messages exchanged are XML using SOAP 1.1.

Looking at the traces in soamanager I see the requests made from the external application. However the requester receives the following SOAP message which is also visible in the soamanager trace:

14:46:33.898|HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error set-cookie: sap-usercontext=sap-client=500; path=/ content-type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 content-length: 380 accept: text/xml sap-srt_id: ......

Virtual Interface Method >HeartBeat::dias:online:DiasOnlineMS.wsdl< not supported

Kind regards,

    An additional information is that SAP_BASIS is less than 702 and, thus, we cannot create a Service Provider from an underlying WSDL document (see note 1575707)
