To use the WSDL importer, choose File|New|Other, and on the WebServices page double-click the icon labeled WSDL importer. In the dialog that appears, specify the file name of a WSDL document (or XML file) or provide the URL where that document is published.
When you click the Next button, the WSDL importer displays the code it generates for every definition in the WSDL document that is compatible with the Web Services framework. That is, it only uses those port types that have a SOAP binding. You can configure the way the importer generates code by clicking the Options button and choosing the options you want.
You can use the WSDL importer when writing either a server or a client application. When writing a server, click the Options button and in the resulting dialog, check the option that tells the importer to generate server code. When you select this option, the importer generates implementation classes for the invokable interfaces, and you need only fill in the bodies of the methods.
As an alternate approach, you can use the command line WSDL importer instead. For a server, call the command line importer with the -Os option, as follows:
WSDLIMP -Os -P -V MyWSDLDoc.wsdl
WSDLIMP -Os -C -V MyWSDLDoc.wsdl
For a client application, call the command line importer without the -Os option:
WSDLIMP -P -V MyWSDLDoc.wsdl
WSDLIMP -C -V MyWSDLDoc.wsdl
