IntelliJ IDEA 2021.2 Help

Generate Java Code from WSDL or WADL dialog

Tools | Web Services | Generate Java Code from Wsdl or Wadl

The dialog opens after you create a Java module and enable Web services client development in it. To access the dialog at any time during development, select the desired client module in the Project view and choose Help | Find Action | Generate Java Code from Wsdl or Wadl from the main menu.

Use the Generate Java Code from Wsdl or Wadl dialog to generate the client-side XML-Java bindings based on the desired WSDL descriptor of the target Web service. Technically, IntelliJ IDEA generates Java code from WSDL using third party libraries. The command that control this process uses data that you specify in the Generate Java Code from Wsdl or Wadl dialog.

ItemDescriptionWeb Service Client Type
Web service wsdl urlSpecify the location of the target Web service WSDL descriptor.All
User Name and PasswordSpecify the credentials for accessing the WSDL URL address. The fields are mandatory if the WSDL location requires authentication.JAX-WS
Output PathSpecify the module source directory to place the generated files in.All
Package PrefixSpecify the package for the compiled Java classes.All
Output ModeSpecify whether you want to generate Java code only for the client side or for the server side as well.Apache Axis
Type Mapping Version

Specify the default type mapping registry for mapping an XML qualified name to a Java class, using a specified Deserializer. The available options are:

Support Wrapped Document/Literal Style

Configure processing of "wrapped" document/literal, which is a document literal variation that wraps parameters as children of the root element.

By default, this is enabled, and a set of conditions defines whether top-level elements are "unwrapped" and each component of the element should be treated as an argument of the operation. The following conditions apply to "unwrapped" elements:

  • An input message consists of single part.

  • This single part is an element.

  • The element has the same name as the operation.

  • The element's complex type has no attributes.

If disabled, there will be no special treatment for "wrapped" document/literal style operations.
