I'm not sure if this is the answer you need but, If the web service is built from bottom up and is successfully deployed, you should be able to view the WSDL at the URL you set up to publish the service by appending ?wsdl to URL. Of course , another alternative is to write a Client for the service.

That is depending upon your web service type.

Some web service directly give result using hit request url that is called GET method.

Some give dynamic in that method you have to use SOAP client and request to web services.

using SOAP client if you get correct response then your web service working fine...
