If you're looking at using only wsdl 2.0, I don't know there a lot of 
tools out there.  I know the Axis 2 people have started on some Java 
stuff to parse WSDL 2.0, but I don't think they have any stub generation 
yet.

For my /SOAP/ serivces which have a WSDL 1.1 descriptor, I select 
several tools (say .NET, Axis, etc), generate stubs and write tests 
which use my service. I would recommend the same, but their are very few 
tools if any that handle WSDL 2.0/REST at this point.  A WSDL 2.0 
description for Yahoo, while neato, doesn't seem very useful to me 
yet... If you really wanted client stub generation for your users, you'd 
be best off making some kind of WSDL 1.1/SOAP gateway IMO :-\.
