I need immediate help to consume web service made using Lotus Notes, because I have no idea or experience doing it. I’m also not able to understand WSDL when using the wizard SE80. I was able to successfully create consumer for WS at SAP.
But both are having different formats. The only solution that I’m able to come up with is to create a WSDL manually, but I don’t think that is a clever solution.
Please give your suggestions and Ideas so that I could achieve this goal.

Web Service in Lotus Notes is basically the same with the one in SAP. Both interact on the other machine or database. However in Lotus Notes you need to make source code which will contain the function and what exactly need to be implemented in the program. You can either use Lotus Script or Java.
The difference in SAP is that it generates its own source code using the tools. WSDL (Web Service Definition Language) is the information written in the Extensible Markup Language (XML). XML is a set of rules using a textual format that can be read by human and machine. WDSL will describe the operations of the Web Service. Coding for Web Service in Lotus Notes can be a lot of challenges on your part, here’s the link as a sample:
It will show you a simple program which can help you to get started.
