What is the use of partner.wsdl?

Hi,

 

I am going through the webservice API. I want to know the use of partner.wsdl. I got to know that this wsdl file is required for dataloader command line for generating partner.jar. Is the partner.wsdl same for all developer editions/ enterprise editions/Unlimited editions?

 

Thanks,

Vinay Kumar.

Hi vinay,

   

    The partner.wsdl same for all developer editions/ enterprise editions/Unlimited edition.

 

Use of  Partner WSDL :

     Use this WSDL to build an integration that can work across multiple Salesforce organizations, regardless of their custom objects or fields. Typically partners and ISVs use this WSDL. 

     It is loosely typed, which means that you work with name-value pairs of field names and values instead of specific data types. The partner WSDL document only needs to be downloaded and consumed once per version of the API.

Hope this help.
