In version 1.7.5 of the free version of soapUI and even the latest version (2.0.2), using the "Add WSDL From URL" feature in the project popup menu fails when the URL ends with "?wsdl". The popup error message produced in version 2.0.2 is "Error importing wsdl:org.apache.xmlbeans.XmlException: error: Unexpected element: OPEN_TAG". When entering the URL in a web browser (Internet Explorer 6 was used), the WSDL content successfully displays. However, it is noticed that the browser redirects to the same URL but ending with "/wsdl/<service_name>". The thought is that HTTP redirects could be causing soapUI to get confused during the import operation. When the redirected URL is used to import the WSDL instead of the original "?wsdl" URL, the import works fine.
