Enables you to create a virtual service without using an existing service description. Select this option to create an empty REST service.

Guidelines and Tips

  • WSDL documents: If the WSDL describes multiple services or a single service specifying multiple ports, select one from the list of available ports in the dialog box that opens. To connect to a secure web service, you will be prompted to enter credentials.
  • Fixed-Length services: Perform a multiple selection of all relevant service description files, and then learn the sample messages. For details, see the Learn Schema Dialog Box.
  • REST services: After you create the REST service, record real service behavior to learn the structure of the service.
