We are using contract first approach to create webservices. First we create the WSDL and share it with the clients. From this WSDL they are able to find out which operations to call and what parameters to pass.
But there are certain things which are not there in WSDL. Example, the client need to send username and password in SOAP header is not there in WSDL. Also, for content transfer MTOM is being used is also not there is in WSDL.
In practice, how is this information shared with the clients?
Is there a way to add it to wsdl?
