Subject wsdl4j compatibility
Date Thu, 20 Feb 2003 03:57:09 GMT
	I am a relatively new Axis user, and I have been trying to 
both create and consume web services. I found an interesting article 

on Dynamic Discovery and Invocation of Web Services which uses 
uddi4j, wsdl4j, and Axis to discover a service, parse the WSDL, and 
then invoke using Axis.

I'm not interested in the uddi4j now, but am very interested in the 
wsdl parsing and Axis invocation steps. Using wsdl4j to extract the 
relevant data from a wsdl file automatically would be a big help for 

Unfortunately, the only file the wsdl4j WSDLReader seems to parse ok 
is the WebMath_Impl.wsdl file that is part of the sample code for the 
article. I tried the WSDL from Axis 1.0 and 1.1RC1 .jws?wsdl 
services, and also from a few services offered through 
In all the failure cases, I get the following error:

WSDLException: faultCode=OTHER_ERROR: No WSDL interface definition found.

And yet, these services do work, and both Axis and SOAP::Lite clients 
can process the WSDL and make successful queries.

Can anybody offer any insight or alternatives?
