Hi, you can invoke a web-service given its wsdl using most IDEs as long as there aren't any security restrictions. In Netbeans, create a web service client project and supply the wsdl using the wizard, here you will have to invoke the service programmatically. In myeclipse, there is a "web service explorer" tool that you can use to invoke a web-service without writing code. There are lots of tutorials online on how to do these.. Hope this helps.
