If you have a close look at the documentation page you will notice that this is just a tool supported version of the Asynchronous Web Service Design Pattern 4: Request/reply operations with posting.
So the "Web services client" is in fact a Web service that supports a "callback Web Service (operation)". So only clients that support a specific "callback Web Service (operation)" can even communicate with that particular "Web Service Server".
A Web service client in the standard sense (the one you can build from a plain WSDL) will not be able to communicate with this type of "Web Service Server".
