How to automate the build process of writing web service clients
Joined: Sep 17, 2001
I have one interesting doubt! Say there are lot of WSDL's exposed by some third party web service providers. I am using Apache AXIS 1.2 RC2 on client side. Are there any tools out there that can write java client programs automatically that used stubs generated by AXIS 1.2 RC2. Since the wsdl's may describe a method that takes or returns some java bean to complex types which themselves again contain complex types, I want to automate the process of constructing such java beans/complex types that are required to call a operation on the web service.
I am automating the build process of above and constructing web service client program that can readily be used by others and only problem is I am not able to automate the process of writing client programs that can be used for testing the web serivce endpoint.
Hope I am clear on my illustration. Please suggest ....
