I'm getting hard time understanding(rather finding) how to setup step by step amazon product advertising API using SOAP request.

They have given the wsdl file but they did not tell how will the user use it.

Does someone here used it before? Please someone share their ideas.

Like any other SOAP web service, using a library like Apache Axis (yuck!). See their code example.

But I would recommend you use the much simpler REST approach, where you send simple HTTP requests with parameters, and receive XML responses. See their REST example. Unlike SOAP/WSDL, there is no elaborate library like Axis required; just XML wrangling using JRE classes.
