    Abstract WSDL consists of the structure of the message that is; what operation, what is the input and what is the ouput . Whereas in concrete WSDL has all the things that the abstract wsdl has in addition it has transport(http,jms) details.


    Abstract WSDL can be used in design time and concrete wsdl will be used in runtime by client to connect to the service.



    Mark the posting appropriately as "helpful" or "correct answer", if your issue is solved.

    Abstract wsdl:-Used on server side,contains request,response and type of operation performed.
    concrete wsdl:-used on client side,contains abstract wsdl and transport used.

    see : https://blogs.oracle.com/aia/entry/aia_11g_best_practices_for_dec
    for an example

    we use the abstract wsdl's so we're able to develop the process wether or not the environment (of the concrete endpoint) is up and running
