Generating the WSDL file for each web service is required when you call web services with a Java client.
Follow these steps:
  1. Access the web service URL in a browser.
    You typically see a message referencing an Axis service and SOAP access.
  2. Append
     ?wsdl
    to the URL.
    Axis generates a service description for the deployed service and returns it as XML in the browser, for example:
    http://localhost:8080/usm/services/AccountService?wsdl
  3. Save the output as a file named
    webservice
    .wsdl. Record the path name for future reference.
Use the webservice.wsdl file as input to web service calls (proxy-generation) when you generate java stubs for each web service.
