WSDLToJava Error: Rpc/Encoded WSDLs Are Not Supported with CXF

Free Resource

Continue to drive demand for API management solutions that address the entire API life cycle and bridge the gap to microservices adoption.  Brought you to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

RPC/encoded is a vestige from before SOAP objects were defined with XML Schema. It’s not widely supported anymore. You will need to generate the stubs using Apache Axis 1.0, which is from the same era.

java org.apache.axis.wsdl.WSDL2Java http://someurl?WSDL

You will need the following jars or equivalents in the -cp classpath param:

  • axis-1.4.jar
  • commons-logging-1.1.ja
  • commons-discovery-0.2.jar
  • jaxrpc-1.1.jar
  • saaj-1.1.jar
  • wsdl4j-1.4.jar
  • activation-1.1.jar
  • mail-1.4.jar

This will generate similar stubs to wsimport.

Alternatively, if you are not using the parts of the schema that require rpc/encoded, you can download a copy of the WSDL and comment out those bits. Then run wsimport against the local file.

If you look at the WSDL, the following bits are using rpc/encoded:

<soap:body use="encoded"
encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">
