We are developing a stand-alone Swing application, which acts as *client* to an existing web service. I have requested WSAD to generate a web-service client from the existing WSDL (file->new->web services->client).
Surprisingly, WSAD insists that such client code be generated in a *web project* (which does not match our requirement for Swing client). Would anyone please happen to know why this mysterious requirement is imposed?
what version of wsad are you using? With 5.12 its based on axis, before it was older framework. Remember that the webservices producers with axis and other framework run indeed inside a web container. You can consume that webservices from your swing app, though.

Thanks for your reply. I wasn't aware wsad 5.1.2 had a different web-services engine. Could I please ask if you've notived a substantial difference, from a developer's point of view ? Namely, would you recommend an upgrade (from 5.1.1.) for this purpose alone ?
