Subject Re: (De)Serialization of complex types AXIS alpha3 w/ WSDL4J
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2002 16:11:46 GMT

The WSDL2Java utility (org.apache.axis.wsdl.WSDL2Java) does handle that WSDL
you mention.  I haven't done so, but if you need to figure out how to roll
your own web service client, you might be able to look at the source for it.
I guess you don't just want to construct a client the quick and easy way?
I've had good success using WSDL2Java and then just filling in the classes
it generates for me.
