Error trying to consume Web Services

Last Modified: 2013-11-19
I have to consume a Web Service from a java application; the WS is generated with LANSA toolset I think.

I built a test application and had to use  a local .wsdl file the other side provided me.
When I built the program, the stubs and everything seemed to be built OK.
The return object had getter methods for all the appropriate strings being returned.
But, I get the following error:
Exception: Unsupported Content-Type: application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8 Supported ones are: [text/xml]

Would you know what I should be looking at? Is it something on the provider side? they told me that they auto-generate their WebServices so they cannot change anything.

I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks.
