Webservice and unresolved links

Dear Community!

I habe developed a tiny EJB and deployed as Webservice successful (I think it was successfukkm because I can test the service via Browser), too.

Now I wanted to test this Webservice by coding a .NET-Web-Service-Client.

The Web-Reverence-Wizard show this Failure-Message:

The document was understood, but it could not be processed.

- The WSDL document contains links that could not be resolved.

- There was an error downloading '

- The underlying connection was closed: Unable to connect to the remote server.

I see the generated WSDL-File and I am able to test the service via the Browser-Interface of SAP Netweaver.

I have WinXP and SAP Netweaver Developer Edition Sneak Preview 2.0

Has anyone some Ideas what´s wrong.

Thanks for your Help

    Hi Jürgen,

    as this is quite an old version I'd advice to not invest any more into this issue as we soon will have a new download with which you can do another test. Once this happens again we would like to look into it - at the t9ime the webservices was quite new, so I guess we could have a bug there.

    • Hi Jürgen,

      An old version of .NET had a bug in URL resolving which caused problems like this. This was reported to Microsoft and they fixed it. I do not know which version of .NET you have.

      As a workaround you may try the download WSDL link on the WS homepage. It will allow you to download a ZIP file that contains all the WSDL files for the appropriate style - portTypes, bindings and root WSDL. Extract the ZIP file and try generating your .NET client from the local file.

      Best regards,
