Important Notes!
1. This XML is the definition of the web service, meaning its inputs, outputs, operations, and the like.  Most likely, you will have another tool read this WSDL and make the operations available to you in your application.  Whenever your utilities or IDE asks for a WSDL path to NV2, you can provide this one.

2. SOAP is done via POST, only with special XML markup in the post-body.
