Hi Friends,

In order to invoke a web service, does the client need have the WSDL file.
If the client doesnt need a WSDL, please explain how this is possible.

Thanks,
Sajan.C

The WSDL is used by code generation tools to generate a client stub that you can access from java. If you have an alternate description of valid SOAP requests and possible SOAP responses you can build your own client by using SAAJ.
