Newbie: What is WSDL?

# Allow downloading Web Service WSDL as a file with an extension   # instead of a file named 'wsdl'   map.connect ':controller/service.wsdl', :action => 'wsdl'

That's in the routes file, but what's it for/mean?



WSDL is for web services like SOAP and defines the interface. A quick Google search should tell you more than you ever wanted to know.
