Web Services Description
Language (WSDL): An XML format for describing network services as a set of
endpoints that operate on messages that contain either document-oriented or
procedure-oriented information. The operations and messages are described
abstractly and are bound to a concrete network protocol and message format in
order to define an endpoint. Related concrete endpoints are combined into
abstract endpoints, which describe a network service. WSDL is extensible, which
allows the description of endpoints and their messages regardless of the
message formats or network protocols that are used.
XML schema: A description
of a type of XML document that is typically expressed in terms of constraints
on the structure and content of documents of that type, in addition to the

SHOULD, MUST, SHOULD NOT, MUST NOT: These terms (in all caps) are used as
defined in [RFC2119]. All
statements of optional behavior use either MAY, SHOULD, or SHOULD NOT.
