Help me out to generate java classes from enterprise wsdl.

I followed this link: http://www.gerd-riesselmann.net/scala/creating-java-classes-wsdl-file-using-apache-axis-2

I installed apache axis and placed wsdl file in the bin\ directory of AXIS. downloaded few jars and placed in lib/ and SET the environment variables like JAVA_HOME, PATH and CLASSPATH

CLASSPATH:C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_09\lib;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_09\jre\bin;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\lib\wsdl4j-1.6.2;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\lib\mail-1.4;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\lib\activation-1.1;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\lib\log4j-1.2.15;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\lib\axis2-ant-plugin-1.6.2;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\lib\saaj;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\lib\commons-discovery;D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\lib\jaxrpc



When I run in command prompt:

D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\bin> wsdl2java.bat -uri D:\axis2-1.6.2-bin\axis2-1.6.2\bin\enterprise.wsdl

I got below error,I didnt find any new folder with java classes in src/ folder.

  • You're executing from the bin directory, you don't need to specify a location, just use -uri enterprise.wsdl . Also do you need to specify the output dir ? or does it default to something. Commented Nov 27, 2012 at 10:04

    Just curious, is there any reason why you are not using the excellent Salesforce WSC library, code.google.com/p/sfdc-wsc? It has all this prebuilt for you and some added features. It also does not require Axis runtime. Commented Nov 27, 2012 at 10:09

Well the easiest way to do the same is using Java EE eclipse Ide.

  1. Create a Java Project
  2. Include the WSDL file in the project
  3. Right Click >> Webservices >> Generate Client

As stupid as it sounds - have you made any typos in the filename?

I didn't specify full path and it works like charm for me:

c:\(my user)\axis\bin>wsdl2java -uri enterprise.xml

Using AXIS2_HOME:   c:\(my user)\axis
Using JAVA_HOME:    C:\Program Files\Java\jre7
Retrieving document at 'enterprise.xml'.
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.axis2.description.
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

But the moment I'll specify incorrect file name (say enterprise.wsdl in my case) it throws same error as yours...
