Java TM API for XML Web Services
(JAX-WS)
wsimport

Specification Version: 2.1
Implementation Version: 2.1 EA1

wsimport

The wsimport tool generates JAX-WS portable artifacts, such as:

  • Service Endpoint Interface (SEI)
  • Service
  • Exception class mapped from wsdl:fault (if any)
  • Async Reponse Bean derived from response wsdl:message (if any)
  • JAXB generated value types (mapped java classes from schema types)

These artifacts can be packaged in a WAR file with the WSDL and schema documents along with the endpoint implementation to be deployed.

wsimport tool can be launched using the command line script wsimport.sh (Unix) or wsimport.bat(windows). There is also and ant task to import and compile the wsdl, see the details below.

Command-line

Syntax

wsimport [options] <wsdl>

The following table lists the wsimport options.

Table 1-1 wsimport Options

Option

Description

-d <directory>

Specify where to place generated output files

-b <path>

Specify external JAX-WS or JAXB binding files (Each <file> must have its own -b)

-catalog
Specify catalog file to resolve external entity references, it supports TR9401, XCatalog, and OASIS XML Catalog format. Please read the XML Entity and URI Resolvers document or see wsimport_catalog sample.

-extension

allow vendor extensions (functionality not specified by the specification). Use of extensions may result in applications that are not portable or may not interoperate with other implementations

-help

Display help

-httpproxy:<host>:<port>

Specify an HTTP proxy server (port defaults to 8080)

-keep

Keep generated files

-p Specifying a target package via this command-line option, overrides any wsdl and schema binding customization for package name and the default package name algorithm defined in the specification

-s <directory>

Specify where to place generated source files

-verbose

Output messages about what the compiler is doing

-version

Print version information

-wsdllocation <location>
@WebService.wsdlLocation and @WebServiceClient.wsdlLocation value

Multiple JAX-WS and JAXB binding files can be specified using -b option and they can be used to customize various things like package names, bean names, etc. More information on JAX-WS and JAXB binding files can be found in the customization documentation.

Ant task

An Ant task for the wsimport tool is provided along with the tool. The attributes and elements supported by the Ant task are listed below:

   <wsimport           
wsdl="..."
destdir="directory for generated class files"
sourcedestdir="directory for generated source files"
keep="true|false"
extension="true|false"
verbose="true|false"
version="true|false"
wsdlLocaption="..."
catalog="catalog file"
package="package name"
<binding dir="..." includes="..." />
</wsimport>



Attribute

Description

Command line

wsdl

WSDL file

WSDL

destdir

Specify where to place output generated classes

-d

sourcedestdir

Specify where to place generated source files, keep is turned on with this option

-s

keep

Keep generated files, tunred on with sourcedestdir option

-keep

verbose

Output messages about what the compiler is doing

-verbose

binding

Specify external JAX-WS or JAXB binding files

-b

extension

allow vendor extensions (functionality not specified by the specification). Use of extensions may result in applications that are not portable or may not interoperate with other implementations

-extension

wsdllocation
The wsdl URI passed thru this option will be used to set the value of @WebService.wsdlLocation and @WebServiceClient.wsdlLocation annotation elements on the generated SEI and Service interface
-wsdllocation
catalog
Specify catalog file to resolve external entity references, it supports TR9401, XCatalog, and OASIS XML Catalog format. Additionally, ant xmlcatalog type can be used to resolve entities, see wsimport_catalog sample.
-catalog
package
Specifies the target package -p

The binding attributes is like a path-like structure and can also be set via nested <binding> elements, respectively. Before this task can be used, a <taskdef> element needs to be added to the project as given below:

  <taskdef name="wsimport" classname="com.sun.tools.ws.ant.WsImport">
<classpath path="jaxws.classpath"/>
</taskdef>

where jaxws.classpath is a reference to a path-like structure, defined elsewhere in the build environment, and contains the list of classes required by the JAX-WS tools.

Examples

  <wsimport
destdir=""
debug="true"
wsdl="AddNumbers.wsdl"
binding="custom.xml"/>


The above example generates client-side artifacts for AddNumbers.wsdl, stores .class files in the directory using the custom.xml customization file. The classpath used is xyz.jar and compiles with debug information on.

  <wsimport
keep="true"
sourcedestdir=""
destdir =""
wsdl="AddNumbers.wsdl">
<binding dir="C:\ws\21rel/etc" includes="custom.xml"/>
</wsimport>


The above example generates portable artifacts for AddNumbers.wsdl, stores .java files in the directory, stores .class files in the directory.

Summary of Changed and Removed wsimport ant attributes

base replaced by destdir

sourceBase is replaced by sourcedestdir

wsdlFile is replaced by wsdl

httpProxy
is removed. Use ant's setproxy task instead for proxy configuration.

versionis removed
