Consuming biomart web services

I am trying to use web services served by the 'biomart' data management system. I can consume other web services easily with NetBeans by New/Web Service Client/WSDL URL and netbeans does it all for me. When I point it at any biomart (for example http://www.biomart.org/biomart/martwsdl) it fails with the error attached. It cannot find the local copy of the wsdl. I THINK it is because NetBeans expects the file to have the extension .wsdl and biomart has no extension on the file.

I have tried saving the wsdl locally and using that, and I have changed the local file to be called martwsdl.wsdl, neither of which changes the error. I cannot find anything in the WSDL Customisation dialog that helps. Putting a copy of martwsdl in the directory xml-resources\web-service-references\martwsdl\wsdl\www.biomart.org\biomart makes no difference (it saves a copy of the wsdl file there called martwsdl.wsdl).

Does anyone have any ideas how I can consume these web services?

I am using NetBeans 6.8, java 1.6.0_17.
