Problems getting started with Java Web Services using CIM (can't connect to web service)

Using Java, NetBeans IDE.


I have created a test account, and am just getting started trying to create a Java application using the Soap based Web Service calls to the CIM API.

I was able to create a web service client using the WSDL address in the Merchant Web Services API manual for CIM and SOAP, but this is about as far as I have been able to get.


I am having issues connecting to the web service.

My first attempt was to try and use the isAlive() function, since it has no parameters, just to see if I can ping the web service.  Here is the source code for my simple test application:


import https.api_authorize_net.soap.v1.ANetApiResponseType;
import https.api_authorize_net.soap.v1.CreateCustomerProfileResponseType;

public class Main {

     * @param args the command line arguments
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // TODO code application logic here
            ANetApiResponseType anrt = isAlive();
        catch (Exception e )
            System.out.println( "Exception = "+e );

    private static ANetApiResponseType isAlive() {
        https.api_authorize_net.soap.v1.Service service = new https.api_authorize_net.soap.v1.Service();
        https.api_authorize_net.soap.v1.ServiceSoap port = service.getServiceSoap12();
        System.out.println( "isAlive = "+port.isAlive() );
        return port.isAlive();

 When I attempt to run this, I get the vollowing exception: Cannot find '' wsdl. Place the resource correctly in the classpath.


Which really does not make sense, since I used the WSDL address when I created the web service client and the WSDL was also included in my project when the WS client was created.


Can anyone give me a clue as to what I need to do in order to get started?
