The thing is that the WSDL generated by CFMX is cached, and not stored on
disk, thus not editable. All the Web Service generation and deployment is
encapsulated and hidden in CF. So I can't modify the WSDL and give it back
to CF to deploy the WS.
What I want to do is modify the WSDL for example to change the encoding
type, also to define complex types. Ther are references to this technique in
a book about CFMX but it is not available in my place.
I am new to this list, so it would be nice if you could put me in touch with
Glen or Tom.

I don't understand what you're trying to do.

ColdFusion uses Axis as its SOAP server. So as with Axis, ColdFusion
auto-generates the WSDL file when you deploy your service. You should be
able to access the auto-generated WSDL file after the service has been
deployed by GETing the service URL appended with ?wsdl. (e.g..

You can then take this WSDL file and edit it. Then you should be able to
redeploy the service, this time specifying your own WSDL file.

wsdl2java generates client and server stubs from the WSDL file. java2wsdl
generates WSDL from your Java class. I doubt that either of these tools will
help you in this situation (and -- by the way -- both of these tools are
included with ColdFusion).

But maybe Glen or Tom can provide more specific info about ColdFusion.
