You can access any web service using WSDL file.

approach is like-

1) First identify WSDL file.
2) Create stubs of WS using WSDLToJava command.
3) Identify authentication if required, and call same in your call from client.

Can you paste error message and let me know the WSDL link if it is not password protected.

The Error Message is,
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/axis/wsdl/WSDL2Java

all jar files are included in classpath

Just make sure....Do you have any of the below jar file in your classpath.

What IDE you are using? try to set axis jars classpath on command prompt and run WSDL2Java command from there.


Information on class org.apache.axis.wsdl.WSDL2Java:

Containing JAR files:
axis.jar
axis-1.0.jar
axis-1.1.jar
axis-1.2.1.jar
axis-1.2.jar
axis-1.3.jar
axis-1.4.jar
axis-1.4.jar
axis-1.1-beta.jar
axis-1.2-RC1.jar
axis-1.2-RC2.jar
axis-1.2-RC3.jar
axis-1.2-alpha-1.jar
axis-1.2-beta-2.jar
axis-1.2-beta-3.jar
