A tool provided by Salesforce to generate Apex classes from a WSDL that allows for callouts to a SOAP based web service from Apex code.

Classes can be automatically generated from a WSDL document that is stored on a local hard drive or network. Creating a class by consuming a WSDL document allows developers to make callouts to the external Web service in their Apex code.
