Yes, from WSDL you can generate the plumbing for both client and server.
But that plumbing is useless unless you can deploy the service which
depends on it.  This deploy step is implementation dependent.  JAX-RPC does
not specify this step.

If we neglect the case of dynamic service discovery, isn't WSDL more like
an IDL for web services, in that it can be used to generate the plumbing
both on the client and server side?  The latest Sun JAX-RPC WSDL2Java
compiler seems to build CORBA like server side tie classes for example.
