WSDL2Java Converting WSDL 2.0 Documents to Stub Classes

This section provides a tutorial example how to use WSDL2Java to generate a client stub class from a WSDL 2.0 document.

After loading WSDL 2.0 document with the ServiceClient class, I tried to use Axis2 WSDL2Java command line tool to generate a client stub class from my WSDL 2.0 document with the "-wv 2.0" option:

C:\herong>set JAVA_HOME=\Progra~1\java\jdk-10.0.1

C:\herong>set AXIS2_HOME=\local\axis2

C:\herong>\local\axis2\bin\wsdl2java -uri Hello_WSDL_20_SOAP.wsdl \
   -o HelloWsdl20 -d adb -s -wv 2.0

Using AXIS2_HOME:   \local\axis2
Using JAVA_HOME:    \Progra~1\java\jdk-10.0.1
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

C:\herong>dir HelloWsdl20\src\com\herongyang\www\service

Good. The stub class generation was successful. Here is Java program to test the stub class, .\HelloWsdl20\src\

 * Copyright (c) All Rights Reserved.
import com.herongyang.www.service.*;
import com.herongyang.www.service.HelloServiceStub.*;
import org.apache.axis2.transport.http.*;
class Axis2StubHelloWsdl20 {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      PrintStream out = System.out;
      try {

// Creating the stub
         HelloServiceStub stub = new HelloServiceStub();

// Fixing org.apache.axis2.AxisFault: Transport error:
//    411 Error: Length Required

// Building the input parameter
         Hello request = new Hello();
         request.setHello("Hello from Stub client.");

// Calling the operation
// Calling the operation
//    Method name is operation name in lower case in Axis2 1.7.8
//    Method name is operation name in Axis2 1.4.1
//         HelloResponse response = stub.Hello(request);
         HelloResponse response = stub.Hello(request);

// Retrieving output parameter
         String output = response.getHelloResponse();

      } catch (Exception e) {

The execution result was good too:

C:\herong>cd HelloWsdl20\src

C:\herong\HelloWsdl20\src>javac -cp .;\local\axis2\lib\* \

C:\herong\HelloWsdl20\src>javac -cp .;\local\axis2\lib\* \

C:\herong\HelloWsdl20\src>java -cp .;\local\axis2\lib\* \

      Hello from server -

Cool. wsdl2java command from Apache Axis2/Java 1.7.8 also support WSDL 2.0 documents!
