Welcome to ssdl.org, the primary source for information on SSDL, the SOAP Service Description Language.

SSDL is a SOAP-centric description language for Web Services. It promotes message-orientation as the architectural paradigm for building distributed applications and enables protocol-based integration between Web Services. The SSDL effort is an attempt to explore ideas in the areas of contract and protocol description and Web Services implementations using message-oriented programming abstractions.
