Websphere WSDL2java - how to connect to webservice

Hello all,

Someone has put up a webservice and provided me with a WSDL file. I now need to connect to this service from my java-projects.

I know some of the theory behind webservices but now I need to put some code into practice for the first time... Can anyone point out how to go about it from here?

I am using Rad 6 websphere environment.

In Java - Use the WSDL2Java jar to generate the client classes you'll need to call the web service.
Here's an example:

In .NET use the wsdl.exe file to generate your client classes.  Here's an example:

You use the generated classed to invoke the web service.

THe given apache document helped to generate the client specific stubs etc. But i need to connect to a webservice which has BasicAuthentication.

 My client app is calling a webservice which has basic authentication. How should i approach using java. I used wsdl2java to generate the stubs etc. But when i am actually calling the methos in the service, i am getting 401 unauthOrised..
