Spring-WS Client

I just start to use Spring-WS client to send request with an attachment to a Web Service. According to the Web service functional spec I received from client, I need to call an operation uploadFile with the file itself as a SOAP attachment. However I am not able to find anything related to attachement in the WSDL file and JAXB generatd classes. As I presume the WSDL should have <mime:part><mime:content part="attach" type="application/pdf" /> </mime:part> declared for the uploadFileRequest. So I wonder if the WSDL I received is wrong.

As I am new to Spring-WS and SOAP attachement, and really not sure if Spring-WS has better way to deal with the attachment. Could someone please help?

The WSDL I got:
<wsdl:portType name="FileService">
<wsdlperation name="uploadFile">
<wsdl:input message="uploadFileRequestMsg" name="uploadFileRequest"/>
<wsdlperation name="uploadFile">
<soap12peration soapAction="uploadFile" xmlns:soap12=""/>
<wsdl:input name="uploadFileRequest">
<soap12:header message="serviceHeaderMsg" part="serviceHeader" use="literal" xmlns:soap12=""/>
<soap12:body use="literal" xmlns:soap12=""/>

schema for uploadFileRequest:
<xsd:complexType name="uploadFileRequest">
<xsd:element minOccurs="0" name="repositoryName" type="xsd:string" />
<xsd:element minOccurs="0" name="fileName" type="xsd:string" />

I agree. Here's the link:
