Official URL


Main features:

  1. Generating java classes without leaving IDE
  2. Supports remote and local WSDL addresses. You can use http://mywebservice.com/service?wsdl or c:\myproject\service.wsdl path
  3. Works with localhost paths. If you are in the middle of developing your web service and it is hosted on your machine then there was no easy way to generate classes in this situation. Problem is that EasyWSDL web site cannot reach wsdl file hosted on you local machine. But now, using EasyWSDL Generator plugin you can easy use your localhost wsdl address and generate classes for it
  4. Automatically adds references to required libraries (jar) used by generated classes
  5. Supports many web service proxies in one Android application project
