What's the role of the WSML(Web Services Meta Language) file?
WSML is a unique feature of the Microsoft SOAP Toolkit. It is not used by any other SOAP implementation (not even .NET). WSML is a service configuration file. It tells the SOAP runtime how to map a SOAP message to a specific COM object.
There's no standard to provide this type of configuration file. Every SOAP implementation has something similar. For example, in Apache Axis, there's a Web Service Deployment Descriptor (WSDD).
