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

Learn how API management supports better integration in Achieving Enterprise Agility with Microservices and API Management, brought to you in partnership with 3scale

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/">
