How to use FIM web service endpoint using JAVA.


I am evaluating FIM 2012 R2 and trying to connect the FIM using Java through Web Service exposed by FIM(as per FIM documentation). I searched for WSDL of the FIM webService, however no luck on that. Please someone help me in these issue:

FIM WebService WSDL location?

Update on above issue.

I am able to get FIM related WSDLs and XSDs using SVCUtil.exe tool provided by Windows SDK.

With the help of this WSDLs and XSDs(after minor modification) I am able to generate Java web service client using CFX 2.5.1. This generates on Service pointing to WSDL location "http://localhost:5725/ResourceManagementService/Alternate?wsdl" which was not present in downloaded WSDLs from SVCUtil.exe tool. So I provided location of downloaded WSDL file.

However I am still unable to call FIM web service endpoint as it gives me error:

The endpoint could not dispatch the request.

When I call "" generated using downloaded WSDLs.

How can I check wheather my FIM setup is correct or not in respect to Web services deployment?

From where I can get Alternate WSDL?

Last but not least, how to FIM web service using  Java?

Any updates on this?  We're also thinking about developing a JAVA client webservice...i'd like to know if you've had any success.

I'm also looking into this and running into some issues and would love to know where the WSDL is at.

My advice to customers that want to interact with FIM from a non-.NET context is to write a thin wrapper in C#/VB using the CodePlex FIM Client that exposes a traditional WSDL so you can easily call it from Java.
