How to download a wsdl file from an unknown axis service ?

Yesterday, I had this error when calling an axis service, an apache soap webservice :

<p>Hi there, this is an AXIS service!</p>
<i>Perhaps there will be a form for invoking the service here…</i>

I wanted to download the wsdl file as I didn’t know which verbs were implemented on that axis service.

So I did a quick search on the internet, on google, and I found this on apache website :


This is the URL to use in order to download the wsdl file.

So I launched a curl command :

curl -v http://<host>/axis/services/<service-name>?wsdl


It is my first post in english in this blog, so feel free to correct any english error.
