hi all,

My boss has said to me that make User interface from that UI you select the wsdl web service loc and you get all available method in an combo box and on selection of an method from the combo box you get all the input text fields. then on ok button you get the response from the integration layer(ws side).

I am going to assume you are starting with little knowledge of web services. We need to establish your background:

What are the standard tools where you work?

IDEs? SOAP toolkits? web servers? Operating systems? Java versions? Other languages used, etc.

That's a big task (especially if you aren't very familiar with WS in general and WSDL in specific); is your boss aware of this?

I think SoapUI can do some of this, so you might take that as a starting point.

Both Eclipse and GlassFish have web service testers and they are open source, as is soapUI that has been mentioned earlier.
Digging around in their source may perhaps give you some clues on how to proceed (which perhaps is what mr Dittmer already said...).
Just a thought...
I agree. Here's the link:
