Validating SOAP messages against WSDL in Java

Is anyone aware of any publicly available APIs or some Java tools which can be used to validate a given SOAP message (request/response) against a WSDL (not XML Schema)?

I am aware of tools like XMLSpy, SOAP-UI and am looking only for some Java programs which can be integrated into our Java application.

wsdl4j can probably be used to piece this together. Has anyone solved this?

Exactly what sort of validation are you looking for?

If the WSDL was used to build server and client code, non-conforming messages will probably cause errors and throw exceptions.

You can use SOAPui etc to create bad messages and see what happens.

I tried to survey general web service testing in this article and this followup article.

I agree. Here's the link:
