To create a service interface stud to exposed the service methods for the client to use,

I need the WSDL.xml file and run the wsimpor tool against it, this will create the stub jar with the interfaces that the client can use to talk to the srveice methods.

Cheers for any help

Yes, wsimport is the tool to use if you want to generate server or client artifacts from a WSDL document.
If you develop a web service this way, then it is called WSDL-first approach.
You can also write a Java class annotated with JAX-WS or JAX-RS (the latter for RESTful web services) annotations. This is called code-first approach.
For a tutorial on developing JAX-WS web service using the code-first approach, see
Best wishes!
