WSDL Support

Hallo,

I was wondering if there are any plans to have a sophisticated support for Web Services, aka WSDL, Policies, etc. ??
SOA and Web Services are major topics in many companies and I don´t see any effort for Idea to support the development needs like the Eclipse Projects WTP and STP ...

The thing is, I don´t want to use Eclipse ;) So is there some hope ??

regards
Paul

I know very well, that there are many standards, but what you basically need is WSDL and the standards around Interoperability (WS-I):
• Basic Profile 1.1
• Simple SOAP Binding Profile 1.0
• Attachments Profile 1.0
• Basic Security Profile (working group draft)
• SAML Token Profile Version (working group draft)

What kind of support can/should an IDE like IntelliJ provide?
Most of the specifications you quote have XSD schemas available that should
assist in instance document editing.

A more graphical / visual support.

Of course, all the specs are XML and Schema based, but if you have complex WSDLs you can easy lose the overview off all parts.

I could image something where you easy see all parts of a WSDL (MessageTypes, Operations, Binding) where you can more easy select available parameters, like input parameter from MessageTypes, etc.

The point is, that even though Idea can handle XML / Schemas very well, it doesn´t understand the meaning of a WSDL nor any related Standard. It cannot support the development in a meaningful way...
