WSAD5.1 WebService Client failure?

Ok - So I'm new to the whole webservices game and I'm told "We need to export employee data to System 'X' - a .NET system via a webService. From what I've read and know this should be a fairly straight forward proposition...

The .NET people sent me a url to some wsdl - which all looked reasonable enough and I discovered a neat little tool in WSAD that should generate some nice java stubs so I dont have to even THINK about SOAP...

My first attempt to generate code form the wsdl failed with a "cannot resolve this" error - but after pulling the wsdl down locally and also getting local copies of any .xsd required the tooling ran and generated a bunch of classes which I was able to use to write code that woudl do what I wanted and compiled nicely...

Unfortunately at runtime it falls over at the first hurdle with this:

Inspection of the documentation reveals that ther is a security component that isnt addressed by this java client - and i cant see how to include it. The wsdl in question looks like this - but WHERE and how do I generate appropriate classes to use this info? Is this a shortcoming of the WSAD5.1 Tooling? Or am I missing something?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
