Connection timing out when creating Web Service Descriptor

I’m currently trying to create a new Web Service Descriptor with a wsdl url that’s been provided to me. From SoapUI, I’m able to create a new SOAP project using the wsdl url but when trying to create the service in webMethods, the connection times out while parsing. Is there anyway to specify a timeout value when initially retrieving the wsdl? I’ve tried disabling the validating schema using Xerces as I’ve seen online that if there are references to other .xsd’s that it might add to the processing time.

Did you try with WSDL file from your provider?

Also, share your IS version with fix levels.

javax.wsdl.WSDLException: WSDLException (at /definitions/types/xs:schema/xsd:schema): faultCode=PARSER_ERROR: Problem parsing ‘’.: Connection timed out (Connection timed out)

I am using the WSDL from my provider. I am on version 9.12

Hi Austin,

did you try to invoke the URL directly from a Browser?

Might be that it was just temporarily unavailable.

Additionally you should check the proxy settings in the Designer Preferences under General.
