Using Sharepoint BDC on WSSF Service Problem

I am trying to use Sharepoint 2007 BDC on Web Service exposed by WSSF and I am having trouble importing the BDC metadata. The error was: 'There was an error downloading http://<ServerName>/<Path>/<ServiceName> Error was encountered at or just before line: 0 and position: 0

This appears to be not a BDC MetaData file format problem and it looks like it has connected to the service and trying to get the file but is having trouble. Any idea?

I seems like you have some char at the beginning of the WSDL that the discovery metadata resolver is unable to identify. You may also try using the MEX metadata resolver appending the "/mex" postfix at the end of your url. On the other hand, you can send the WSDL file and we may check what's going on.

Thanks for the offer. I have opened a case with Microsoft Technical Support and they are assigning someone from their Developer team to help. I'll also ask them to figure out how to deal with SAML protected WSSF scenario. Will post result when avaliable.
