What is WSDL2Java? WSDL2Java is a command line tool that generates Java classes from an existing WSDL document. Generated classes represent client stubs, server skeletons and data types that will helps you to write client side and server Java programs for Web services defined in the WSDL document.
WSDL2Java is distributed as part of the Axis2 package developed by Apache. Since I installed Axis2 1.4.1 in \local\axis2 folder on my Windows system, I can run WSDL2Java with no argument to get help information about WSDL2java:
C:\herong>set JAVA_HOME=\local\jdk C:\herong>set AXIS2_HOME=\local\axis2 C:\herong>\local\axis2\bin\wsdl2java Using AXIS2_HOME: \local\axis2 Using JAVA_HOME: \local\jdk Usage: WSDL2Java [options] -uri <url> : A url or path to a WSDL where [options] include: -o <path> Specify a directory path for the generated code. -a Generate async style code only (Default: off). -s Generate sync style code only (Default: off). Takes precedence over -a. -p <pkg1> Specify a custom package name for the generated code. -l <language> Valid languages are java and c (Default: java). -t Generate a test case for the generated code. -ss Generate server side code (i.e. skeletons) (Default: off). -sd Generate service descriptor (i.e. services.xml). (Default: off). Valid with -ss. -d <databinding> Valid databinding(s) are adb, xmlbeans, jibx and jaxbri (Default: adb). -g Generates all the classes. Valid only with -ss. -pn <port_name> Choose a specific port when there are multiple portsin the wsdl. -sn <service_name> Choose a specific service when there are multiple services in the wsdl. -u Unpacks the databinding classes -r <path> Specify a repository against which code is generated. -ns2p ns1=pkg1,ns2=pkg2 Specify a custom package name for each namespace specified in the wsdls schema. -ssi Generate an interface for the service implementation (Default: off). -wv <version> WSDL Version. Valid Options : 2, 2.0, 1.1 -S Specify a directory path for generated source -R Specify a directory path for generated resources -em Specify an external mapping file -f Flattens the generated files -uw Switch on un-wrapping. -xsdconfig <file path> Use XMLBeans .xsdconfig file. Valid only with -d xmlbeans. -ap Generate code for all ports -or Overwrite the existing classes -b Generate Axis 1.x backward compatible code. -sp Suppress namespace prefixes (Optimzation that reduces size of soap request/response) -E<key> <value> Extra configuration options specific to certain databindings. --noBuildXML Dont generate the build.xml in the output directory --noWSDL Dont generate WSDLs in the resources directory --noMessageReceiver Dont generate a MessageReceiver in the generated sources --http-proxy-host Proxy host address if you are behind a firewall --http-proxy-port Proxy port address if you are behind a firewall -ep Exclude packages - these packages are deleted after codegeneration -sin Skeleton interface name - used to specify a name for skeleton interface other than the default one -scn Skeleton class name - used to specify a name for skeleton class other than the default one
