WSDL will tell you how your SOAP object should look like.
Its described what its takes as a SOAP request and how it will give back the SOAP response.

Without WSDL , the public users(clients) will not know what inputs it can send.

To get further tips...

Please explain on, in what format you are sending your xml file ? what your service is expecting from you and so on.

Thanks balaji,
here we are developing the private service, client will know the what is the service will do and how it will execute. it won't expose to any one other than client.

input xml is soap object only.client send the data in the form of xml i have to receive the xml and get the data and do some maniplication and give the sucess or failure message to client

In this case WSDl is required and i want to validate the in put xml with xsd. how i can do

my web server version is was

i am little bit confuse in all these . if possible please provide the sample web service application only with soap and wsdl not may help to me
