I have a webservice that has multiple services and all of those services are registered in a private UDDI registery. If a standalone java application or web-based application(j2ee app) want to use those services dynamically, what is the best API to use?. Is it Apache Axis, Apache SOAP or JAX-RPC. I am confused to which one I should use, if someone can share their experience/knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
I am able to dynamically create client proxy from WSAD wizard, but what if the client dont have the WSAD. How and which API should the client use to connect to UDDI, lookup the service, download WSDL service description file to their machine(client machine, convert the WSDL file to java class and finally invoke the service?.

I know this might not be an answer you'd like to get, but here it goes...
It shouldn't matter which API the client will use. The point is that they can choose. Regarding the UDDI part, are you talking about "which API" or "which tool"? Most UDDI registries come with some kind of web interface to it, but if you're talking about programmatic access, then JAXR is a good choice.
