Web EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is a method that allows businesses to send and receive orders, invoices and other business documents directly from their web browsers without the need for expensive and complex EDI software. This approach simplifies EDI, making it more accessible and cost-effective, particularly for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Typically Web EDI platforms are provided by larger companies to their smaller suppliers to enable the supplier to exchange documents in the specific format required.

WSDL (Web Services Description Language) is an XML-based language used to describe the functions offered by a web service. It details what the service can be called, as well as its parameters and return types. WSDL acts as a contract between service provider and consumer, facilitating the automatic generation of client-side code for service interaction. A WSDL document typically includes definitions of data types, messages, operations and service access points, making it essential for integrating diverse web services.
