Subject Re: Need of WSDL in Axis1.1

Anup,

If .jws is sufficient for you (you're using simple types such as
strings, ints and arrays) then fine. You don't need to do anything
further - the WSDL comes in potentially when writing clients and not, in
this case, the server.

The WSDL informs the client software (or its author) how it, he or she
should interact with the service. In the case of .jws deployment you
don't need to explicitly save or generate this, it will be available at
the ?wsdl address. For example, if your service endpoint is at
http://foo.com/myservice.jws the WSDL will be available at
http://foo.com/myservice.jws?wsdl

On the client side I suggest you take a look at
http://ws.apache.org/axis/java/user-guide.html especially the section
'Using WSDL with Axis' (it's a bit over half way down) which explains
the use of the WSDL2Java tool to build your client side stubs. A stub
class is a bit of code that abstracts away the transport (SOAP + HTTP)
from the client code, and it is this code that can be generated
automatically from the WSDL.

HTH,

Tom
