WSDL Refactoring

When updating a WSDL, the underlying contract changes may require changes to all messages related to a certain modification, for example if an element has been renamed or moved. Also, XPath expressions in assertions, property transfers and expansions, etc. may need to be updated to correctly reference updated elements.

The WSDL Refactoring feature in soapUI Pro aims at greatly easing this update process by providing a wizard allowing you to map old message elements to new ones, resulting in automatically updated message content and xpath expressions. You always have the possibility to manually override or discard those changes created by soapUI during the process, ensuring that the correct result comes out in the end.
