How to convert a WSDL created from Java services to the .NET client?

I need to invoke a Java Web service from a .NET client. The Java Web service is hosted on Apache-Axis using JBoss. How do I convert my WSDL created from Java services to the .NET client?
The first thing you want to do is just try compiling the WSDL with the .NET tools. It should generate a .NET client proxy for you. You may encounter some trouble, though, if you are using Java collections such as array lists, link lists, hashmaps, etc. The Apache containers aren't always compatible with .NET. You may need to perform an XSLT transformation or implement some custom deserializers for your .NET client. See these schemas to compare the Apache containers with containers that are compatible with .NET.
