Hi guys!I'm totally newbie in the world of web services and I don't know what to do. Here is my problem. I have a WSDL File, honestly, I don't know what I need to do with it. I have to instantiate an object and this happens to be a web service object. I was just wondering do I need a jar file specific to my web service object? That's the way I know how to instantiate an object or there is a new way to instantiate it using that WSDL File? Help! I need help! Thanks

Which IDE are you using? If it has support for web services development, it should have a feature with which you can point a "wizard" to your WSDL document and generate all the plumbing code with a few mouse-clicks. The resulting pile of Java source files will then contain the classes and interfaces your client code needs to use for talking to the web service.

Now I know what I have to do. Our web service object is hosted on a Weblogic Application server. There is a
clientgen" task in ANT that I have used to generate the client stub and put it in a Jar file.
I agree. Here's the link:
