Hi Sam,

OK, I believe you are looking for WSDL generation for C Services. You
don't see a WSDL file because in .NET, when you point to your URL you will
see an ASMX test interface rather. That is .NET specific, and we don't
have a similar alternate. Calling
http://localhost/axis2/services/echo?wsdl or something similar in a .NET
context would show you a WSDL. And, that is also a .NET specific way of
doing things. We don't have something similar too.

However, I'm not sure whether we support CtoWSDL. Devs, do we support this?

Anyway, you can always come up with an easy workaround. That is to
primarily use .NET to generate the WSDL file for you and based on that
WSDL file, the codegen tool (WSDL2C) can generate C code for you. Thus,
you will have to write the service in .NET and then get the WSDL file, use
it, and create C code. Therefore, you will write code only once.

Also, it is possible to manually write service discovery files and use it
for services that don't provide WSDL files in .NET. This is a real tedious
