You can explore the Web services that the GAS can deliver by launching demo applications that invoke them.

  2. To show for example that the Web service called Calculator is working, you can retrieve its Web Service Description Location (WSDL)
    Enter the address http://localhost:6394/ws/r/demo/Calculator?WSDL in a browser
    Note: The WSDL provides you with details such as the address of the service. For more information on WSDL, please see the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
