24.4. Generating WSDL

Using Maven

Once your code is annotated, you can generate a WSDL contract for your service using the java2ws Maven plug-in's -wsdl option. For a detailed listing of options for the java2ws Maven plug-in see Section E.3, “java2ws”.
Example 24.18, “Generating WSDL from Java” shows how to set up the java2ws Maven plug-in to generate WSDL.

Example 24.18. Generating WSDL from Java

<plugin>
  <groupId>org.apache.cxf</groupId>
  <artifactId>cxf-java2ws-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>${cxf.version}</version>
  <executions>
    <execution>
      <id>process-classes</id>
      <phase>process-classes</phase>
      <configuration>
        <className>className</className>
        <genWsdl>true</genWsdl>
      </configuration>
      <goals>
        <goal>java2ws</goal>
      </goals>
    </execution>
  </executions>
</plugin>

Example

Example 24.19, “Generated WSDL from an SEI shows the WSDL contract that is generated for the SEI shown in Example 24.7, “Fully Annotated SEI”.
