How to use read a WSDL file from the file system using Python suds

0 votes

Hi all, so I was checking out the suds documentation. And from what I have learned until now, I am able to create my own client. That is if I have the URL for the WSDL is what I know.

Check out the below snippet:

from suds.client import Client
url = 'http://localhost:7080/webservices/WebServiceTestBean?wsdl'
client = Client(url)

Do note that I have the WSDL file on my file system now already.

My question is simple. Is it possible to make use of suds in this scenario to read the WSDL file from the native file system (mine) and avoid hosting it on a random web server?

All help appreciated!

Hi, good question.

It is a very simple and straightforward answer, to be honest. Make sure you try to use the following as the URL parameter:


This will surely solve your query and you should be up and running quickly.

Here is another snippet of code:

# Python 3
import urllib, os 
url = urllib.parse.urljoin('file:', urllib.request.pathname2url(os.path.abspath("service.xml")))

This will basically let you specify the local path only and it will also get you the absolute path as well. Win-win.

Hope this helped!
