Generate Java code from WSDL file

I am new to Java. I am trying to create SOAP Web service client to consume a vendors webservice which requires username password and ssl certificate.

A vendor provided me SoapUI project file. I imported the project file in SoapUI and ran the tests. Those tests worked successfully.

I then exported the wsdl file using SoapUI and tried to generate java code using wsimport. I am unable to generate code. I am getting all sorts of errors which I tried to resolve by searching online but none of the solutions work.

I am using jdk1.8.0_152. and SoapUI version 5.3.0 by SmartBear.

I tried to use this wsimport command on command line of Windows 7:

wsimport -keep -verbose -s src vendor.wsdl

and I received this message:

[WARNING] Simple type "RiskType" was not mapped to Enum due to EnumMemberSizeCap limit. Facets count: 365, current limit: 256. You can use customization attribute "typesafeEnumMaxMembers" to extend the limit.

line 4317 of file:/C:/Projects/soapclient/vendor.xsd

With the SoapUI Project file they also sent me the below files:

  • jaxbbinding.xml
  • wsdlbinding.xml
  • ACORD_v2.2.0.xsd
  • ACORD-WSP_v2.0.0.xsd
  • Soap12-Envelope.xsd
  • xml.xsd

So tried wsimport with -b option like below:

wsimport -keep -verbose -s src vendor.wsdl -b ../jaxb/jaxbbinding.xml -b ../jaxb/wsdlbinding.xml

I received this error :

[ERROR] "file:/C:/Projects/soapclient/.../ACORD_v2.2.0.xsd" is not a part of this compilation. Is this a mistake for "file:/C:/Projects/soapclient/..../ProcessSuretyBond_1_2.xsd"?
  line 13 of file:/C:/Projects/TestProjects/soapclient/..../jaxb/jaxb-binding.xml

Exception in thread "main"

        at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(

Not sure but should I request new binding files from the vendor ?

It works in SoapUI so shouldn’t it work with wsimport ?

I tried all solution out there to resolve this issue including creating file in jdk folder, adding jvm argument in maven’s system settings etc. None worked.

I will appreciate if someone can point me in right direction and help resolve this issue. Many thanks in advance.
