The wsdlc.exe utility was documented in the SQL Anywhere 12 Help, and delivered in the bin32 and bin64 folders on Windows, but it is gone from all three locations in SQL Anywhere 16.
By "gone" I mean MORE than just Monty-Python-parrot-dead, there's no body, not even an obituary in the "removed features" section.
There ARE traces remaining, however... fond mentions in some of the sample code of how wsdlc was instrumental in generating SQL-from-URLs; e.g.,
C:\Users\Public\Documents\SQL Anywhere 16\Samples\SQLAnywhere\HTTP\soap.globalweather.sql
This utility was removed in SQL Anywhere 16 for two reasons: (1) It was used for generating code for mobile web services applications with QAnywhere, and QAnywhere was removed, and (2) its existence for generating SQL SOAP client procedures for SQL Anywhere web services was thought to be no longer justified given the decreasing popularity of SOAP.
We meant to remove all mention of it from the documentation but apparently we didn't quite succeed. It would be worth a comment in DCX where you see it mentioned.
