Note also that the WS-I Basic Profile [1] disallows overloaded messages:

4.5.3 Distinctive Operations

Operation name overloading in a wsdl:portType is disallowed by the Profile. 

R2304 A wsdl:portType in a DESCRIPTION MUST have operations with distinct
values for their name attributes. 

Note that this requirement applies only to the wsdl:operations within a
given wsdl:portType. A wsdl:portType may have wsdl:operations with names
that are the same as those found in other wsdl:portTypes.

Hi All,


I have a third party WSDL which has overloaded methods.


I am using apache-axis 1.2 and when trying to run WSDL2Java it complains
saying, the method is overloaded.


But when I use xml-axis-10 I don't get this problem and I could generate the
client side stubs.


May I know why is this happening? And how to generate client side code using
apache-axis 1.2


Any help highly appreciated.


Thanks & regards,
