Did you ever find a solution to this? We were planning on trying to do
the same but this same issue came to mind for me.

Hello all,


Normally you can access the WSDL file from a deployed web service (after
wsdeploy,etc.) by accessing it via http://localhost/Service?WSDL for
example. This seems to be working for me, however my WSDL document does
a schema import in order to import common data types defined in a .xsd
document. Although this .xsd file is included in the deployable WAR file
for the service, it doesn't seem to be accessible via the
http://localhost/Service?WSDL approach. Is there some extra step that I
need to do in order to make it available? If you point a tool such as
wscompile or .NET's "Wsdl.exe" utility to the
http://localhost/Service?WSDL, it's not able to download the entire WSDL
since it can't seem to find the imported schema file as well.


Any suggestions?
