I have a WSDL file and i want to generate java classes from it. i use wsimport to do that. I am able to generate all the java and class files using wsimport, but i need only beans (classes with only getters and setters to be generated)

Can you please help me in generating java classes for content with in <wsdl:types></wsdl:types>

What IDE are you using ?
If you are using Eclipse IDE, then you can use web service wizard('Ctrl+N'/Web Service/Web Service Client).
You just have to provide the wsdl url and the output folder.

If you generate artifacts using the web service wizard in Eclipse, make sure you get what you want.
I am not sure it generates JAXB bean classes. ...and it will still generate other artifacts.
If you do not mind using a terminal window, then use the JAXB schema compiler command "xjc".
It will generate JAXB bean classes from an XML schema or a WSDL and nothing more.
Best wishes!
