<h2>Generate a JAX-WS Web Service Client from a WSDL document using Apache CXF</h2>
<li>Install and configure the Apache CXF runtime environment. See the <a href="PLUGINS_ROOT/">Requirements and Installation</a> page for more details.</li>
<li>Create a Dynamic Web Project and enable it for Apache CXF Web services development as described here: <a href="../tasks/create_cxf_project.html">Create a project for CXF Web services</a>.</li>
To generate a JAX-WS client from a WSDL document:
<li>Select <a class="command-link"
<img src="PLUGINS_ROOT/" alt="Open the Java EE perspective"><strong>Window &gt; Open Perspective &gt; Java EE</strong></a> from the top level menu to switch to the Java EE perspective.</li>
<li>Open the Web Service Client by selecting <a class="command-link" href='javascript:executeCommand("org.eclipse.ui.newWizard(")'>
<img src="PLUGINS_ROOT/" alt="Open the new web service client wizard"><strong>File
&gt; New &gt; Other... &gt; Web Services &gt; Web Service Client</strong></a> from the top level menu.</li>
<li>Web Services page:
<p><img src="./images/ws_client_wizard.png" alt="Web Services Client Wizard"></p>
<ol type="a">
<Li>Enter the URI to the remote WSDL file that will be used to generate the client.</Li>
<li>Select <b>Java Proxy</b> as the Client type.</li>
<li>Move the client slider to the <b>Develop client</b> stage.</li>
<li>Web service runtime: Select Apache CXF 2.x</li>
<li>Service project: Select the project in your workspace into which Apache CXF will generate the code.</li>
<li>Click <b>Next &gt;</b> to move to the first Apache CXF wsdl2java Configuration page:
<li>Output Directory: Specify the source folder in the service project into which the code is generated.</li>
<li>Package Name: Type the Java package name to use for the generated code.</li>
<li>Specify WSDL Namespace to Package Name Mappings: Optionally specify WSDL namespace mappings to Java package names.</li>
<li>Service Name: Specify the name of the WSDL service from which to generate code. The default is to generate code for every service in the WSDL document.</li>
<li>Binding Files: Specify one or more JAX-WS or JAXB binding files.</li>
<li>Click <b>Next &gt;</b> to move to the second Apache CXF wsdl2java configuration page which allows you to override the <a href="../reference/wsdl2java_tab.html">wsdl2java</a> default preferences:
<li>Click <b>Finish</b> to generate the client.</li>
<p>The generated client will include a main() that when run will connect to the remote service and invoke every operation on that remote service.</p>
<p>Before running the client open the client in the Java Editor and edit the generated arguments used to invoke the operations on the service.</p>
<p>To <b>run</b> the client right-click on the client in the Project Explorer and select <b>Run As > Java Application</b>.
