Consuming .NET WS from an AS400 application

I have a .NET Web service and want to consume it from an IBM AS400 iSeries standalone Java application (so it's not in the Web container from the WebSphere application server). So, I created a Java project in WSAD5.1 and want to generate a Java proxy client for the Web service using the WSDL2Java tool:

com.ibm.ws.webservices.tools.WSDL2Java -verbose -role client PPService.wsdl
I

get the following error:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
org/eclipse/emf/ecore/resource/Resource$Factory
	at
com.ibm.ws.webservices.wsdl.mapping.MappingMetaData.(MappingMetaData.j
ava:133)

	at com.ibm.ws.webservices.tools.WSDL2Java.main(WSDL2Java.java:355)
Exception in thread "main" 

Can you tell me what is wrong?

BTW: I have found a jar with the class that is missing and put it in the classpath, but then there is another class missing and so on......
I suspect that the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) hasn't been installed and configured properly in WSAD. The Web services tools relies on EMF.
