Web service description

The interfaces of all DBC web services are published in WSDL v1.1. The parameters that a web service takes for each of its functions, are desribed in an XSD-file, which is located together with the WSDL. 


DBC web services can typically be accessed with SOAP/XML and also a REST-like URL-syntax. See the individual services for details.

For most services the desired output-format can be set with parameter outputType. Default output format for SOAP and URL-requests is SOAP, and XML for XML-requests.
