Problems calling a C# Web services from JSP

I have created a Web service in C#. I'm trying to call it from JSP. I'm using JRun 4.0 and used the Wsdl2Java utility. It created four java files, as follows:


Now I don't know what to do next. I tried to create an object of my proxy then call the function of my service, but I couldn't do that, (e.g, SdkService service = new SdkService();) then call the method, but I got an error that it couldn't find SdkService. Also, if I use the taglib directive, then I get an error that the tag's handler class jrun.axis,tags.webservice invoke tag wasn't found.
From Macromedia's documentation:

Creating and using a JSP-based proxy client
After you create proxy code, you must write a proxy client that invokes the target Web service operations by instantiating a Web service proxy object and calling its methods. A sample JSP-based proxy client and its source code are available in the Web service sample application on the samples JRun server.

To create a JSP-based proxy client:

1. Instantiate a proxy factory and a proxy; for example:

proxy.SampleServiceService stubFactory =

new proxy.SampleServiceService();

proxy.Sample stub = stubFactory.getSampleService();


2. Call the proxy's method(s) and print the result to the page; for example:
<%= stub.getResult(3)%>

Make sure that you import all the classes you need, and make sure your classpath is set up properly.
