-<h2>Choosing a Client Generation Method</h2>
-
-<p>Axis2 gives you several options when it comes to mapping WSDL to objects
-in generating clients. Three of these options are Axis2 DataBinding
-Framework, XMLBeans, and JiBX databinding. All of these methods involve using
-databinding to create Java objects out of the XML structures used by the
-service, and each has its pros and cons. You can also generate XML in-out
-stubs that are not based on databinding.</p>
-
-<p>Axis2 Databinding Framework (ADB): ADB is probably the simplest method of
-generating an Axis2 client. In most cases, all of the pertinent classes are
-created as inner classes of a main stub class. ADB is very easy to use, but
-it does have limitations. It is not meant to be a full schema binding
-application, and has difficulty with structures such as XML Schema element
-extensions and restrictions.</p>
-
-<p>XMLBeans: Unlike ADB, XMLBeans is a fully functional schema compiler, so
-it doesn't carry the same limitations as ADB. It is, however, a bit more
-complicated to use than ADB. It generates a huge number of files, and the
-programming model, while certainly usable, is not as straightforward as
-ADB.</p>
-
-<p>JiBX: JiBX is a full databinding framework that actually provides not only
-WSDL-to-Java conversion, as covered in this document, but also Java-to-XML
-conversion. In some ways, JiBX provides the best of both worlds. JiBX is
-extremely flexible, enabling you to choose the classes that represent your
-entities, but it can be complicated to set up. On the other hand, once it is
-set up, actually using the generated code is as easy as using ADB.</p>
-
-<p>In the end, for simple structures, ADB will likely be enough for you. If,
-on the other hand, you need more power or flexibility, whether you choose
-XMLBeans or JiBX depends on how much power or flexibility you need and your
-tolerance for complexity.</p>

-
-<h2>Generating Clients</h2>
-
-<p>The process for generating and using a client varies slightly depending on
-the method of generation you choose. In all three cases in this document,
-clients are generated from the same WSDL file (see <a
-href="userguide-codelisting5.html">Code Listing 5</a>).</p>
-
-<p>Notice that the document defines four operations, DoInOnly, NoParameters,
-TwoWayOneParameterEcho, and MultipleParametersAddItem. Each of the clients
-will include methods for calling each of these operations.</p>
-
-<p>(You can get more information on WSDL at <a
-href="http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/desc/">http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/desc/</a>
-.)</p>
-<a name="adb"></a>
-
-<h2>Axis Data Binding (ADB)</h2>
-
-<p>To create a client using ADB, execute the following steps:</p>
-
-<p><b>The short story:</b></p>
-<ol>
-  <li>href="http://ws.apache.org/axis2/download/1_1/download.cgi#std-bin"If
-    you have not done it already, <a href="">download</a> and unpack the
-    Apache Axis2 Standard Distribution.</li>
-  <li>Create the client stub with the following command:
-    <pre>%AXIS2_HOME%\bin\WSDL2Java -uri Axis2UserGuide.wsdl -p org.apache.axis2.axis2userguide
-d adb -s</pre>
-  </li>
-  <li>Create the client (for example, Client.java), a Java application that
-    uses the generated stub, and save it in the
-    org/apache/axis2/axis2userguide directory.</li>
-  <li>Build the client by typing ant jar.client.</li>
-  <li>Assuming you have a corresponding service, run the client by adding the
-    generated Axis2UserGuideService-test-client.jar file located in build/lib
-    to the classpath and typing:
-    <pre>java org.apache.axis2.axis2userguide.Client</pre>
-  </li>
-</ol>
-
-<p><b>The long story:</b></p>
-
-<p>If you have not done it already, <a
-href="http://ws.apache.org/axis2/download/1_1_1/download.cgi#std-bin">download</a>
-and unpack the Apache Axis2 Standard Distribution. The Axis2 War Distribution
-does not include the necessary utilities for generating code, such as
-WSDL2Java.</p>
-
-<p>In the ADB method of generating clients, all the functionality for the
-services are contained a single class called a stub. The stub contains inner
-classes corresponding to all of the necessary objects defined in the WSDL
-file, such as, in the case of this WSDL, DoInOnlyRequestMessage. Once you
-have the stub, you will be able to create a client by simply referring to
-these classes and their methods. To generate the client, issue the following
-command in Code Listing 6.</p>
-
-<h3><b>Code Listing 6 - Generating the Client</b></h3>
-<pre>%AXIS2_HOME%\bin\WSDL2Java -uri Axis2UserGuide.wsdl -p org.apache.axis2.axis2userguide
-d adb -s</pre>
-
-<p>This command analyzes the WSDL file and creates the stub in the package
-org.apache.axis2.axis2userguide. The options specify that you want the ADB
-data binding method (-d), and synchronous, or blocking, methods (-s). In
-other words, when the client makes a In-Out call to the service, it will wait
-for a response before continuing.</p>
-
-<p>Once you run this command, you will see two new items in the directory.
-The first is the build.xml file, which contains the instructions for <a
-href="http://ant.apache.org/">Ant</a> to compile the generated classes. The
-second is the src directory, which contains the actual
-Axis2UserGuideServiceStub.java file. If you open this file, you will see a
-collection of inner classes for each of the items in the wsdl file. You'll
-also see a number of calls to the Axis2 client API, including those that use
-axiom to build and analyze the incoming and outgoing messages.</p>
-
-<p>Now you need a client to make use of this code. To create a client, create
-a new class and save it as Client.java in the org/apache/axis2/axis2userguide
-directory. It should contain the following code in <a
-href="userguide-codelisting7.html">Code Listing 7</a>.</p>
-
-<p>Notice that using the service is simply a matter of creating and
-populating the appropriate type of request using the names defined in the
-WSDL file, and then using the stub to actually send the request to the
-appropriate method. For example, to call the DoInOnly operation, you create a
-DoInOnlyRequest, use its setMessageString() method to set the contents of its
-messageString element, and pass it as an argument to stub.DoInOnly().</p>
-
-<p>To build the client, type: ant jar.client</p>
-
-<p>This action creates two new directories, build and test. The test
-directory will be empty, but the build directory contains two versions of the
-client. The first version, in the lib directory, is a jar file that contains
-the Client class and the stub. The second, in the classes directory, is just
-the raw classes.</p>
-
-<p>Make sure all of the jar files in the Axis2 lib directory are on the
-classpath.</p>
-
-<p>If you have a service corresponding to this client -- if you don't, check
-out the <a href="userguide-buildingservices.html">Building services</a>
-document -- you can run the client by adding the jar file to your classpath
-and typing: java org.apache.axis2.axis2userguide.Client</p>
-
-<p>You should see the response in a console window of your servlet container.
-It should look something like this:</p>
-
-<p><img alt="Response in a console window of your servlet container"
-src="images/fig03.jpg"><br clear="all">
-</p>
-
-<p>ADB is not your only option for generating web service clients. Other
-options include <a

-href="userguide-creatingclients-jibx.html">JiBX</a>, JAXME and JAXBRI.</p>
