// WSDL link and create "$token" and "$client," 
// see: 
try { 
   $paymethods = $client->getCustomerPaymentMethods($token,$custnum); 
   echo "Found " . count($paymethods) . " payment methods: \n";
   foreach($paymethods as $paymethod)
        echo $paymethod->MethodName . "\n";
} catch(SoapFault $e) { 
     echo $e->getMessage(); 
     echo "\n\nRequest: " . $tran->__getLastRequest(); 
     echo "\n\nResponse: " . $tran->__getLastResponse(); 


This example uses the USAePay Java library. For directions on how to install the library and create the token/client objects, go to either the Java JAX-RPC Howto or the Java JAX-WS Howto.

try {
  //Set custnum to the Customer Number of customer you want to 
  //retrieve payment methods from.
  BigInteger custnum = new BigInteger;
  PaymentMethodArray PaymentMethods = new PaymentMethodArray();
  PaymentMethods = client.getCustomerPaymentMethods(token, custnum);
} catch (Exception e) {
    System.out.println("Soap Exception: " + e.getMessage());
