Postman is a great tool for testing your RESTful services but sometimes it just doesn't play nice. If you're trying to import a WADL generated by WebLogic you will come across this error - "Failed to import data: format not recognized". WebLogic is not doing anything wrong in this case and the problem lies with Postman.

The error is caused due to the use of a namespace on all elements inside the WADL. For some reason Postman can't process that.

The solution is simply to remove the namespace i.e. replace "ns0:" with an empty string...

As soon as that's done, Postman can import the WADL without any issues.

Problem solved!
