Packaging Service is a service with a SOAP web service interface. It is used for packaging one or more native SDO’s into a richer SDO of different types. It may i.e. be used to package one or more LTV-SDO’s into a PAdES SDO.

The service may be used from any platform capable of making a SOAP web service call.

The service relies on Signicat’s SDS service for uploading and downloading binary document data.


The WSDL for the service is available at:


The only difference between the wsdl in preprod and production is the soap address location attribute.
