How to generate java client classes from WSDL - images/logos/java.jpg

 

To generate the client classes will use wsimport tool. This tool will parse a WSDL file and all required files for web service client to access the published web services. This tool is available in the JDK installation folder: $JDK/bin.

Note: to learn more about how to create a WSDL file, please follow How to create WSDL file with Eclipse tutorial.

The minimum command line would be:

$ wsimport -p com.admfactory.ws -s src wsdl/InvoiceService.wsdl -wsdllocation wsdl/InvoiceService.wsdl -verbose

Parameters used

  • -p specifies the target package;
  • -s specify where to place generated source files;
  • -wsdllocation @WebServiceClient.wsdlLocation value
  • -verbose output messages about what the compiler is doing

For full parameters list run the command:

$ wsimport -h

Output

$ wsimport -p com.admfactory.ws -s src wsdl/InvoiceService.wsdl -wsdllocation wsdl/InvoiceService.wsdl -verbose

The files were generated using Mac OS, but will work also for Windows OS.
