JSP test client for Axis2 service

I'm new to web services, and working on converting one from Axis to Axis2 using Eclipse.

Using Axis, Eclipse would generate a nice simple JSP test client for us - methods in the left frame, input and results on the right. You punch in your parameters and click Invoke and see the results. This client doesn't seem to be generated when we use Axis2.

Have tried all the Eclipse wizards (Dynamic Web Project, Web Service, Web Service Client, etc) and running wsdl2java command line. All I get is some .java stubs but no JSP. I know I can test within Eclipse using Web Service Explorer but we need something for testers who don't use Eclipse.

Can you suggest how I can generate the test client, or if needed, maybe an example of how to code one? Tried to convert the old Axis client to Axis2 but got mired in the org.apache.axis plumbing.

Check out SoapUI - I think it can present a testing UI to the user based just on the WSDL.

Thanks, I had hoped to avoid needing a separate tool, but soapUI does look pretty slick.
