probably a silly question

I've just implemented
RPC example from the book: Java Web Services (by Chappell and Jewell - O'Reilly Press).
It is an easy example to type in and execute. It uses an ISBN number to get a Branes and Noble price for that book.
The service endpoint was found at services.xmethods.com.
When I "analyse the WSDL document" for that service, it tells me that the "default style" is RPC.
Now, I'd like to modify that O'reilly code to access another web service. I'd like to access the delayed stock service found at ws.cdyne.com.
You can also analyse the WSDL document for that service at
However, when I do, I see that the "default style" is not RPC but rather is "document".
Also, other WSDL parameters are not the same (e.g. soab body is a literal)
Surly this must mean that I need to modify my example, but I'm not sure how.
Is there an example anywhere of a web service client accessing a service of this type?
Web service vs. custom XML over HTTP solution?
Question on WSDL
How to generate a correct WSDL for a service with overloaded methods ?
Apache Axis wsdl2java tool
